Did you follow steps 7 and 8 of 
http://www.dcc.fc.up.pt/~pbrandao/aulas/0203/AR/modules_inst_cpan.html ?

If you managed to install Bundle::CPAN, when you now run 'cpan' it 
should start up and tell you its version number, which should be v1.9102 
or higher. If its lower, you didn't manage to install the latest CPAN, 
or you haven't managed to tell Perl where your newly installed modules are.
