Installing Puppet v3.2+ in Ubuntu


By default, when using apt-get, Puppet v2.7 will be installed. This version doesn’t support useful features, such as Lambdas and iteration. To use these experimental features, Puppet v3.2+ is required.


First, visit and determine the matching Ubuntu version.

Let’s assume we are using Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring Ringtail). So, we will choose from the list.

Execute the following commands to install Puppet:-

sudo dpkg -i puppetlabs-release-raring.deb
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install puppet

Finally, run the following command to verify the installed version:-

puppet --version

The installed version should be v3.2+ and above.
