I am currently running puppet 2.7 on my Pi, but that's a bit behind the times.
The currently suggested approach for upgrading Puppet is to use the puppet labs repo ( see Puppet on Raspberry Pi or Installing Puppet 3 in a BeagleBone or Raspberry Pi). However, I see that the main repo has puppet 3.7., e.g. http://ftp.acc.umu.se/mirror/raspbian/raspbian/pool/main/p/puppet/ contains both puppet-common_2.7.23-1~deb7u3_all.deb and puppet-common_3.7.2-4_all.deb .
I ran an apt-get update/dist-upgrade today, but I still don't get the updated puppet. apt-cache does not recognize the new version:
$ apt-cache showpkg puppet Package: puppet Versions: 2.7.23-1~deb7u3 (/var/lib/apt/lists/mirrordirector.raspbian.org_raspbian_dists_wheezy_main_binary-armhf_Packages) (/var/lib/dpkg/status) Description Language: File: /var/lib/apt/lists/mirrordirector.raspbian.org_raspbian_dists_wheezy_main_binary-armhf_Packages MD5: 1dc71ec043c0ade030b8a9e18410f9ef
How can I install the updated puppet packages from the raspbian repo?
