I found the problem. Refreshing, removing and readding the
repository, and even a complete reboot of the computer doesn't help.
Yet, It works when specifying :

BioPerl-Regular Releases : http://bioperl.org/DIST/package.xml
as a repository.

I think this should be adjusted on the installation page in the WIKI.
