Thank you Kahlil for your reply.

I made few perl changes, uninstalled CPAN, removed the .cpan dir, and reinstalled, and ran 'install CPAN' and everything looked much better. That is, no failures. The last part of the output was;

t/97-mock.t ................... ok
t/97-process_options.t ........ ok
t/97-process_setup_options.t .. ok
t/97-return_values.t .......... ok
All tests successful.
Files=30, Tests=815, 79 wallclock secs ( 0.55 usr  0.04 sys + 57.45 cusr  6.75 csys = 64.79 CPU)
Result: PASS
  /usr/bin/make test -- OK
Running make install
Appending installation info to /root/perl5/lib/perl5/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/perllocal.pod
  /usr/bin/make install  -- OK

And that's it. Ran reload CPAN and it still shows v 1.98. Getting much closer? Any ideas?

Thanks again,
