The error is «Can't locate version/», that suggests something is
wrong with your installation. 5.16 ships with a recent
version of version, so it shouldn't need the pure perl version in the
first place. Does «perl -Mversion -E 'say version->new(1)'» work?

This really sounds like something is wrong with your local setup, but
it could be a number of things.
