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

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
