Looks like a CPAN problem.  Quit and try again.

The issue seems to be that the author name is corrupt and has a space in it.
This is being seen as an option to ftp, etc.

If the problem persists then try going to http://search.cpan.org find your
package, download it manually.  There are instructions on manual install on
CPAN, I don't have the details to hand, but basically unzip/untar, perl
Makefile.pl, make, make test, make install, finished
