You should not upgrade the system perl. Some of the system tools may and often do depend on that version. Similarly, you should only use the system's package manager to install modules into the system perl.

If you want to use a newer version of perl, which would be a good idea, you should install it in a new location and keep the system perl intact. The easiest and probably best way to do that would be to use perlbrew, which allows you to install and switch between multiple versions.
