I am using puppet-enterprise-3.3.2-el-6-x86_64.tar.gz to install puppet enterprise, after installation I got

ERROR: Could not install required packages--this may be due to a network failure or incorrect repository
  settings. You must install the following packages before you can install Puppet Enterprise:
 pe-puppet-server and pe-rubycas-server

while I install I got

pe-httpd.worker is stopped.

Also I tried "service pe-httpd status" it shows

pe-httpd.worker is stopped.

I suspect due to this I got n/w failure error

I have done below validation 1) yum.log - No error message

2) install_log.lastrun.$HOSTNAME - No error message. I have seen complete message. 3) puppet --version - shows 3.7.2 (Puppet Enterprise 3.7.0) 4) also I ran puppet apply -e 'notify { "Hello, world!": }' - it worked with out any error

I tried to install pe-puppet-server(just for my referrence)

yum install pe-puppet-server

got below message

Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager

Setting up Install Process
Package is obsoleted by which is already installed
Nothing to do

but in package folder I could not find Not sure how it get inatalled.

Also I grep "rmp -qa|grep" it shows I unstalled PE and done yum clean all. Again tried to re-install PE. Again getting same error.

The network failure or incorrect repository error is common.If not, please help me to resolve.

Also I try to install3.3.2 but why it shows 3.7 PE version please correct me if my understaning is wrong.
