Sometimes you will get conflicts if the new package doesn't have a
corresponding base package but was built into the base's monolithic rpm. I
don't think base has a separate package for that module, but has it as part of
the base perl rpm.

If you really need the newer version you might have to --force it. Or you can
see if the version in base perl is OK for your needs.
