if this is still an issue ...

some packages require or expect pre-requisite packages to be in certain paths or be verifiable thru certain utilities (i.e., pkginfo, yum, etc.). i am thinking your issue is that your ruby package came from a different source as your puppet package so the puppet install could not find it during the pre-install checks. you either need to install a ruby package from the same source as the puppet package or you need to fix the path to ruby so puppet finds it. symlinks may help if you go through with the path fix.

Puppet only supports some Ruby versions, see here https://ask.puppetlabs.com/question/...error-message/
