  You might want to try
    install Bundle::CPAN
    reload cpan
  without quitting the current session. It should be a seamless upgrade

sounds like you got a corrupted file
try again, and/or try with another version
I would suggest to update your CPAN first as told at the beginning of your message with:
> install Bundle::CPAN
> reload cpan

After that, exit from CPAN, remove any files under/root/.cpan/* and restart CPAN. It will re-get any files and shoud help.

You can always force an install of a module in CPAN (even if the tests fails) with the command:
> force install CDB_File
