I think you have messed-up your F::Q installation.
gnc-fq-update is not a good idea under Linux (IMHO) because
Perl can be installed differently depending on your Linux
I suggest to re-install Finance::Quote from your distribution
provider. (If you can get F::Q 1.17, that's good, because it
contains a fix for the online retrieval of currency quotes.)
Then, try gnc-fq-dump, at least to check that Finance::Quote
can be found and used by GnuCash.
