You may also have an old version of LWP::UserAgent installed, so using 
cpan to update is also a way to go. Additionally, you can run a Perl 
script like this "perl -cw pulledpork.pl" to see what else (if 
anything) you might be missing and what errors might be there.

Usually, most folks run cpan on the cli and install modules from there, 
if you already have cpan set up you can do this to install without 
using the cpan shell: perl -MCPAN -e 'install LWP::UserAgent' (as root 
normally, to install system wide)
