Missing and outdated CPAN modules in Ubuntu (Debian)
Today I tried to set up the Perl Maven site on a fresh Ubuntu/xenial 16.04 using the system-perl.
Most of the CPAN modules the site needs could be installed using apt-get, but there were a few that I could not find or that were outdated.
Acme::MetaSyntactic 1.012 not found. Business::PayPal 0.13 not found. DBIx::RunSQL 0.12 not found. Dancer2::Plugin::Passphrase 2.0.5 not found. Dancer2::Session::Cookie 0 not found. EBook::MOBI 0 not found. MetaCPAN::Client 0 not found. Module::Version 0 not found. Template 2.25 not found. We have 2.24. Test::WWW::Mechanize 1.44 not found. We have 1.42. URL::Encode::XS 0 not found. YAML::XS 0.59 not found. We have 0.41.
I did a quick check, and DBIx::RunSQL 0.12 is on BackPan.
What happens if you update the pre-reqs to the latest versions?
As Corion pointed out to me in a private mail it is also in Debian but it is not in Ubuntu.
