getting Log::Log4perl to install on windows strawberry perlby Aldebaran (Deacon)

Aldebaran has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to juggle my perl development issues with the 3 platforms I use: windows 10, linux, and termux on android. Each has its challenges. The one that has ground me to a halt right now is on my windows machine. When I select cpan from the strawberry perl entries in the startup menu, I get:
I don't know why I'm being prompted about the lockfile, as I don't think there is an antecedent cpan process running, but then I also don't believe STDOUT is lying to me. When I try to install Log::Log4perl , I get:
When I further investigate the original cpan error in the given location of readline.pm, I find:
Although the line number is 410, this seems to be some of first executable code, so it looks like this fails quickly.
Not being able to install this module is stopping me from being able to install WWW::Mechanize::Chrome, which has it as a prerequisite. Also, I just installed Excel::Writer::XLSX using the same toolchain to prove that I have write privileges.
Anyways, fishing for tips and tricks,
