Just updated perl5.12 to perl5.16 as a result of this announcement ...

20140214:
AFFECTS: users of lang/perl5.12
AUTHOR: mat@FreeBSD.org

Perl 5.12 has been removed. The default Perl is lang/perl5.16.

and I'm getting an error on the main screen (image attached). Doesn't appear anywhere else that I can see but this has only occurred since the update of the perl version.

    Does restarting Webmin fix this? You can do that with the command /usr/local/etc/webmin/restart

    Tried that but it hung ...

    "Stopping Webmin server in /usr/local/lib/webmin"

    Decided to reboot server much to my users annoyance which has fixed it thankfully.

    A reboot would also fix it.. or you could kill the webmin miniserv.pl process.

    Because webmin is written in perl, if you update perl the old binary will still be running, but may be unable to load any modules as the old version's module directory has been replaced.
