    CPAN: checksum security checks disabled because Digest::SHA not installed.
    Please consider installing the Digest::SHA module.

    If I try and install Digest::SHA It simply returns the exact error.

    Catch 22 !

    try an upcp --force and that will likely install the missing modules.

    Good Luck!

    You need to update the perl version of the server to the current one 5.8.7.
    Code:
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl587installer.tar.gz
    tar zxf perl587installer.tar.gz
    cd perl587installer
    ./install
    
    Then run upcp:
    /scripts/upcp --force

    This should fix your issues.
