The breaking of File::Temp and Scalar::Util after upgrading Perl on Red Hat-based systems has been discussed quite a few times over the years. With Scalar::Util, the version installed by the upgrade is up to date, but how it’s compiled by the package maintainers is the issue.

Hit it right on the head.
Ran the force install Scalar::Util and all is well.
How did you know that this was the issue?

More than likely, the upgrade broke the Scalar::Util perl module. From a CPAN prompt, do:
force install Scalar::Util
This should reinstall the Scalar::Util perl module over what the Redhat upgrade just installed…

I just upgraded the Red Hat system that RT 3.8.8 is running on. Upon reboot, RT would not stop and was complaining that my File::Temp was at 0.16 and needed to be at 0.18. So I upgraded to 0.22 and now RT will still not start. The error message in the httpd log is:
Unknown error\nCompilation failed in require at (eval 2) line 1.\n
I have loaded 0.18 and things are still down.
Any ideas or any more information needed?
