Errors downloading files for CPAN modules


F

Hi,

I'm a perl newb installing some modules for various software I've
downloaded. Whenever I try installed bundles in CPAN it seems to error
out when downloading the sources files (01mailrc.txt.gz,
02packages.details.txt.gz, 03modlist.data.gz). I've manually
downloaded the files from the sites that CPAN lists and it will then
install the packages correctly. Neither LWP nor FTP work for grabbing
these files, yet a manual check ensures those files are on the remote
sites... It's a bit annoying to have to download those files manually
each time I want to install a new module. Can anyone help me figure
out what's going wrong here? Let me know if you need any more
information. TIA.
I've pasted the seemingly infinite loop I seem to get myself in when
installing bundles without manually updating the files:
