in reply to perlbrew -- permission denied problems

It looks like somebody had already run cpan as root via sudo, and cpan created some directories (as root) in user's home directory.

You can safely chown them back; use sudo -H next time you want to run CPAN shell as root to not pollute your home directory with files owned by root. Even better, you can set up a local::lib overlay in your home directory and install modules without requiring root priviledges.

Sorry if my advice was wrong.
