I see them there... but as said. The installer borked with that msg.

Thanks for (hopefully) adding the others  required by sa-update:

NOTE: the optional LWP::UserAgent module is not installed.
NOTE: the optional HTTP::Date module is not installed.

  The "sa-update" script requires this module to make HTTP
   If-Modified-Since GET requests.

optional module missing: HTTP::Date
