module-assistant problem

Everytime I run the module-assistant or even update it I'm getting the following error. Any idea what it could be?

# module-assistant
Can't locate Text/ in @INC (@INC contains: /etc/perl /usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5 /usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/share/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .) at /usr/share/perl5/Text/ line 15.

You need to install the following perl module package.

apt-file search Text/
libtext-charwidth-perl: usr/lib/perl5/Text/
