    Instead of debugging all that, here's my SSCCE showing --installdeps happily trying to install the test requirements. I've intentionally used deps which don't exist.

    $ ls cpanfile $ cat cpanfile on 'test' => sub { requires 'Nosuch', '1.0'; suggests 'Stillno', '1.0'; }; $ cpanm -S --installdeps . --> Working on . Configuring /tmp/testreq ... OK ==> Found dependencies: Nosuch ! Finding Nosuch (1.0) on mirror failed. ! Couldn't find module or a distribution Nosuch (1.0) ! Installing the dependencies failed: Module 'Nosuch' is not installed ! Bailing out the installation for .. $

    Hopefully you can use this as a starting point to see why your deps are being ignored.
