Aha!  THIS did the trick.  Ironically I'm pretty sure I'd already done
this for some other package i needed to update ...   OpenSSL, I think
...  I'm not sure why I didn't think of trying it on Perl, except that I
didn't realize it was the same problem.  I now have both perl-512 and
perl-522 installed, and the tools that want modules included only with
perl-522 are happy, and update-manager SHOULD stop nagging me that it's
unable to update.

The amusing part of this is that it didn't need to uninstall perl-512 to
accomplish the update *anyway* ...
