in reply to PPM has module but BugZilla says it's missing
when PPM downloads several packages, and one of them is inaccessible (e.g. because the versions do not match), it immediately stops downloading remaining packages, and starts installing the ones already downloaded. What happens is that these packages are downloaded in a pretty random order, and so dependencies may not have been downloaded before the failure and PPM doesn't even notice that it forgot to install dependencies first.The workaround got me further down the track, but then failed, with something else complaining about missing modules. However, following the official line wasn't getting me very far, either. The point is that I was not installing multiple modules at any time. I was following the instructions and adding the modules one by one from the command line. One of the problem modules, Template Toolkit, seems to my unskilled eye to have no dependencies.
