Look at what you got installed now. I think you should be able to detect
the name if you search the list of installed packages. I also noticed
some remarks that the IO module is part or perl itself but I think it is
unlikely that ubuntu is shipped with a stone-age version of perl.

Not being an ubuntu user myself I can not provide you with an exact name.
