Debian – apt-get install perl problem

I wanted to install new package on Debian. But what a funny message:

E: Could not perform immediate configuration on 'perl-modules'. 
Please see man 5 apt.conf under APT::Immediate-Configure for details. (2)

How to solve it?

Type:

apt-get install perl -o APT::Immediate-Configure=0

    Try manual installation of perl packages via dpkg.
