Well, I hate to have this be my first post here, but I have a problem of my own making. I believe I may have over-written some system Perl (5.8.8) modules. I had installed perlbrew to be able to use Perl 5.26.1 and when I couldn't get it to install a module, I used the wrong command path for cpanm which overwrote(?) some of the system modules. I need to see if there's an easy way to restore the system modules back to what they were before. I don't know if this would have helped, but Backup Configuration wasn't enabled before today since this is a newer account.

Here's what's happening. I'm trying to run a script that simply prints out @INC and this is what I get:

# /home/user/scripts/print_inc_list.pl
Attempt to reload List/Util.pm aborted.
Compilation failed in require at /home/user/perl5/lib/perl5/x86_64-linux/Scalar/Util.pm line 23.

Compilation failed in require at /home/user/scripts/inc_list_latest.pl line 8.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /home/user/scripts/inc_list_latest.pl line 8.


If it is a problem with the modules, as I suspect, I don't know how many were inadvertently updated. Do I need to completely reinstall cPanel, or is there a less invasive way to fix this situation?

Thanks,
Frank

I could still use some help with this. Since I posted, I did a force reinstall at Home > Cpanel > Upgrade to Latest Version. That didn't help me. And just today, I upgraded to v68.0.26 but that didn't solve my problem either, so I must have changed something at a low level that an update can't touch.

Is there a way to fix this without doing a complete erase and install?

Thanks,
Frank

Thanks for getting back to me, Michael. I followed the instructions from your 2nd link, first deleting /home/.cpan/ then running cpan> o conf init. Neither one worked. Then I stumbled across this link:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/537963/several-perl-packages-including-cpan-and-re-pl-not-working-after-upgrade-from


which recommended re-naming the /home/user/perl5 directory and that seems to have solved the problem. I'm having to reinstall every module that I had installed before, but at least I'm not getting that error anymore.
