Types::Serialiser::BooleanBase installation?

Types::Serialiser::BooleanBase installation?

I mentioned this issue in a different forum, but it might be more appropriate here; it might be an installation issue

I sometimes get the warning:

Can't locate package Types::Serialiser::BooleanBase for @JSON::PP::Boolean::ISA at [PG]/lib/WeBWorK/PG/ line 414

So I tried to install, via CPAN and as root, Types::Serialiser::BooleanBase:

# cpan Types::Serialiser::BooleanBase

Loading internal logger. Log::Log4perl recommended for better logging

Has anyone seen this warning?

Did you ever resolve this issue?  I am curious.  I have seen this issue with problems that use the AskSage method.

I only see the issue with Ubuntu 20.04, and only if the package libtypes-serialiser-perl is installed.  It is not that package though, it is something that has changed with the perl JSON module itself I believe.  If I install the perl module Types::Serialiser directly from cpan this also occurs.

This did not occur with Ubuntu 18.04.
