Cpan is trying to install the latest File::Find, but since File::Find is
part of the base Perl distribution, it can't upgrade it without
upgrading your Perl version as well (which is not allowed by default).

To determine if you have File::Find already installed (which you
should), do this:

perl -e 'use File::Find'

If that runs without errors, it is already installed and you don't have
to worry about it.
