Amazon Percona(MySQL) Failing To Install

FATAL ERROR: please install the following Perl modules before executing ./scripts/mysql_install_db:
Data::Dumper

Recently when I tried to install percona 5.6 MySQL on a Amazon server, I was thrown with the below error, 

[root@localhost mysql]# ./scripts/mysql_install_db --defaults-file=/etc/my.cnf --basedir=/usr/local/mysql --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql
FATAL ERROR: please install the following Perl modules before executing ./scripts/mysql_install_db:
Data::Dumper
[root@localhost mysql]#

Its due to the perl data dumper file missing. In order to solve the above issue we need to install the missing dependencies as below,

yum install 'perl(Data::Dumper)'

[root@localhost]# yum install 'perl(Data::Dumper)'
