This looks to me like a readline issue. Does CPAN.pm work after these messages? If it does, please ignore them, if it doesn't please try to remove your ~/.inputrc and see it that helps. Thanks,

True. The solution is to refresh ~/.inputrc from /etc/default/skel/.inputrc Perl readline appears to expect whitespace following the : between the keyname or "keyseq" and the function-name or macro.

That should be /etc/defaults/etc/skel/.inputrc
Thanks for clearing things up! Closing ticket now.
