Looks like a networking problem. Can you access this from the command line of the machine in question? If not then you need to speak to your sys/network admins. If you can you may still need their help to configure cpan, e.g. WORKING WITH BEHIND FIREWALLS. FWIW cpanm has fewer dependancies. I work mainly offline using a cpan mirror created by minicpan, copied onto our clients network, with no internet access.

    the machine i'm working on is very securied and no one will give internet access.. I must say it very frustrated i can't just download the modules put them in the folder do some Perl trick and thats it....:) why i cant just create the private folder with the modules i need without using the old one installed elsewhere? Is there some clear guide how to do it?

      This is exactly the situation I'm in, at home or elsewhere create a minicpan, transfer it using the clients signed off mechanism, extract and then install via cpanm as normal. Another alternative would be to install your own version of perl specific to your application elsewhere on the system. One argument for doing so is leaving the system perl alone, which could be a convincing argument for this course of action given the environment in which you are working.

      So local::lib now has a prerequsite of EUMM v7. You seem to have a method for transferring files onto this system somehow, here's a method for getting an up to date EUMM & local::lib installed. In my example below ignore the wgets for the packages, I'll leave them in for a complete end to end illustration:

      marto@pihost:~$ perl -v This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for arm-linux +-gnueabihf-thread-multi-64int ........ marto@pihost:~$ wget +/local-lib-2.000023.tar.gz marto@pihost:~$ wget +S/ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.30.tar.gz marto@pihost:~$ tar xzf ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.30.tar.gz marto@pihost:~$ cd ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.30/ marto@pihost:~$ perl Makefile.PL INSTALL_BASE=$HOME/perl5 marto@pihost:~$ make marto@pihost:~$ make test marto@pihost:~$ make install marto@pihost:~$ cd .. marto@pihost:~$ tar xzf local-lib-2.000023.tar.gz marto@pihost:~$ cd local-lib-2.000023/ marto@pihost:~$ perl -I $HOME/perl5/lib Makefile.PL --bootstrap marto@pihost:~$ make marto@pihost:~$ make test marto@pihost:~$ make install

      Now follow the remainder of the local::lib config. As mentioned earlier a minicpan is a great advantage working the sort of envrionements you and I seem to. After the above I installed cpanm and was able to use it to automatically install modules without issue. Let me know if this causes any problems.

      Update: As mentioned earlier, we installed our own perl, which is far more recent than the system perl, in another directory, and all our apps use this. Negates lots of issues. Our client saw this as a sane and logical suggestion, keeping clear of the system perl.

        I installed ExtUtils-MakeMaker-7.30

        going back to local-lib-2.000023 and install

        ... I dont understand whats wrong, I install the ExtUtils::MakeMaker , I think locally but when i try to install the local::lib it still see the old verison of ExtUtils::MakeMaker
