( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I got around to updating ExtUtils-MakeMaker v6.58 via Activestate's PPM. Unfortunately, PPM claims there is a problem:

Synchronizing Database ... done
ExtUtils-MakeMaker marked for install
Installing package ...
Downloading ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Unpacking ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Generating HTML for ExtUtils-MakeMaker-6.58 ... done
Updating files in site area ... failed
Installing package failed

ERROR: File conflict for 'C:/Perl64/html/site/lib/CPAN/Meta/Converter.html'.
The package CPAN-Meta has already installed a file that package ExtUtils-MakeMaker
wants to install.

I'm a little confused. Looking at ExtUtils-MakeMaker on CPAN, I don't see any CPAN-Meta-Converter module, so why does PPM think one is being installed?

I presume this will require fixing by hand? What's recommended? Should I uninstall this version of ActivePerl and install another version?

This is using PPM version 3.11; ActivePerl version 5.12.2.1203.
