HTTP::Request and CPAN support

I have tried installing HTTP::Request and I think i have missed up my CPAN ...... Not sure what to do now, do I have to reinstall the CPAN again...

This is what I get:
root@Admin:~# perl -MCPAN -e shell
Terminal does not support AddHistory.

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7601)
ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')

Any support will be appreciated.
I have also tried to download my HTTP::Request from here:

i Have installed it but it wont work yet, what I mean it work is when I install f-prot it would still say
File permissions: /usr/local/f-prot/f-prot rwxr-x-r-x   OK.
File permissions: /usr/local/f-prot/tools/ rwx------    OK.
Checking for new virus signatures:
Error: Unable to include perl module: 'HTTP::Request'.
Please install this module and try re-running this script.
(Hint: man CPAN)
the thing is that i cant run the update online ... i cant use ftp proxy... so I need to download the file manually and install it my sefl.
