I'm getting back into Perl; several months ago I had to have a new hard drive installed and so had to start over again. When I try to update CPAN, I get this message:
Your configuration suggests that CPAN.pm should use a working directory of /Users/lolajl/.cpan Unfortunately we could not create the lock file /Users/lolajl/.cpan/.lock due to 'Permission denied'.
Looking at /Users/lolajl directory, I'm seeing this:
drwxr-xr-x 4 lolajl staff 136 Nov 27 2014 .config drwxr-xr-x 8 root staff 272 Jun 14 20:14 .cpan
When I try to run "sudo chown root:lolajl .cpan", I get:
chown: lolajl: illegal group name
How do I get this corrected so that CPAN can run properly?
