CPAN issues
Message ID:
Dear all,

I'm having trouble installing stuff on CPAN. I'm using the cpan script:
cpan script version 1.03 version 1.7602

It tells me there's a new available, so I type install
Bundle::CPAN. After a lot of text, including some requests for
dependencies, I get:

Recursive dependency detected:
 => Test::Harness
 => A/AN/ANDYA/Test-Harness-3.17.tar.gz
 => File::Spec
 => S/SM/SMUELLER/PathTools-3.30.tar.gz
 => Scalar::Util
 => G/GB/GBARR/Scalar-List-Utils-1.21.tar.gz
 => Test::More
 => M/MS/MSCHWERN/Test-Simple-0.92.tar.gz
 => Test::Harness.
Cannot continue.

What do I do now? How do I update CPAN?
