A wee bit more detail might help things out also. What version/arch of
CentOS are you using? Do you have any control panel software like
plesk or cpanel installed?

What's the output of 'grep -ri exclude /etc/yum*' ?

There are quite a few things which could feed into the error you're
seeing. It could be anything from an arch conflict or packaging
oversite in rpmforge, to cpanel's exclusion of all things perl in your
yum config. A few details about your setup would help figure things
