    We keeping getting the below response when attempting to upgrade. We believe it is that the Digest::MD5 module is not and will not install. We can not conduct the install because it is not installed. Does anyone know the work around for this problem?

    Code:

    We found the fix in one of the other update to Perl 5.8.8 threads.

    Thanks to forlinuxsupport how passed on the below from CPanel Support:

    Code:
    cd /
    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/perl588installer.tar.gz
    tar -xvzf perl588installer.tar.gz
    cd ./perl588installer
    ./install
    cd /
    rm -rf ./perl588installer
    rm ./perl588installer.tar.gz
    rm -f /home/*/.cpanel-datastore/_usr_bin_perl_-v
    /scripts/upcp --force 
    
    Thanks again,
    Dave, Jon, Rob, Lynn, & Kerren
