For what it's worth ...

I went to this (possibly inaccurate) list of CPAN distributions which are dependent upon Module::Install:

I extracted the 127 top-level distros, then excluded all distros beginning with Acme, Bundle or Task.  That left 114 distros, which I attempted to install against Perl 5 blead (commit 930ded654, Apr 2 2019) on FreeBSD-11.2 (threaded) using cpanm as the installer.  (I.e., the same approach I take toward monthly testing of the "CPAN-River-3000".)

Certain modules failed to install for reasons that were expected given that they, or their prerequisites, do not get a PASS grade during the monthly CPAN-River-3000 process.  Other modules failed to install because of upstream breakage in blead.  However, I couldn't identify any distributions which failed due to Module::Install itself.

Thank you very much.
