Hi. As the subject reads, the "o" command has recently stopped working for me. The usual drill is to do this: cpan x --update_source o Now, however, cpanp is always reporting no outdated modules for two weeks now even though, for example, Moose-2.0002 is installed and Moose-2.0006 is the newest version according to CPAN. I'm using CPANPLUS-0.9105 on a Debian "squeeze" system (2.6.32-5-amd64). perl -v reports: This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi (with 51 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail) My intuition tells me that there's one or more outdated modules in the @INC path to which CPANPLUS is binding: @INC: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.1 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10 /usr/local/lib/site_perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0 . I saw bug ID #67901 which sounded similar to the problem I'm having but Filter::cpp is already the latest version (1.39) according to find /usr -name cpp.pm -exec grep VERSION.*= {} \; Thanks, Andris

It sounds like you are using an out-dated CPAN Mirror http://mirrors.cpan.org/ There are currently a lot of them that are still mirroring from FuNET which has stopped being the master CPAN mirror. If your CPANPLUS is configured to use ftp://ftp.cpan.org (which is the default) then this is a geo-locating thingy wotsit that connects to a local mirror automagically. Either way, reconfigure your mirror list to use one that is fresh. Many thanks.

My original mirror list: [1] ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/pub/CPAN [2] ftp://mirrors1.kernel.org/pub/CPAN [3] http://mirrors.kernel.org/cpan [4] http://mirrors1.kernel.org/cpan [5] http://cpan.develooper.com has started working again. Thanks for the reference to < http://mirrors.cpan.org/ >; it should reveal future occurrences of a similar problem. ------ Andris
