I need some help/advice and I'm not sure if this is the place but i'm
going to give it a shot.
After attempting to upgrade to perl 5.005 I ran into some problems. Mainly
libcgi-perl will not uninstall. I am not sure if this package was
incorrectly distributed and it may be possible for me to get a new version
and then unistall it. I am at a loss and for the past 2 1/2 hours I have
been trying franticly to get a simple upgrade to complete.
None of the --force options work with dpkg. I always get this error.
Removing libcgi-perl ...

/usr/lib/perl5/CGI/Carp_dist.pm by libcgi-perl', none removed

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process returned an error code (1)
What is there that I can do. I can't go bask to perl 5.004 anymore because
the packages that libcgi-perl require need perl 5.005. I am basically
stuck and am not seeing any hope.
