When cpan returns the dreaded "won't install without force"
Please don't blindly go reporting bugs.
Most likely, the last output of cpan when trying to install a module is Won't install without force if a test before that failed. So please go look at the bug reports and CPAN Tester status of the module to see whether others already have reported that bug/test failure. Also, please check whether the test failure is really in the module you're trying to install, or whether it is with some module further upstream.
