The package puppet-dashboard is missing. Just compare the Trusty's repository hosted by Puppetlabs: with e.g. good old Precise's:

Puppetlabs' own puppet module that manages its installation seems to never been actually tested on Trusty, starting with wrong location for the nologin binary (which on Debian-based system is /usr/sbin/nologin rather than /sbin/nologin). I started to slowly cut my way through it, but after spending half of day and workarounding the mentioned two issues and some other I realized that it would take at least 2 days to work out how to install it (and make a working puppet module). I know almost exactly no Ruby, so if there is a deeper problem with the dashboard code itself, all this time would be simply wasted.

Did anyone managed to run it on Ubuntu 14.04?

The Puppetlabs version of puppet-dashboard requires Ruby 1.8.7. 14.04 ships with 1.9.3. Also it was EOL'ed Oct 2012.

There has been some community updates to the original dashboard. You may want to look at Foreman or puppetboard as well.
