class apache_server {

        source => "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/${name}",
#       notify => Package["${name}"],
package {

        "dpkg --install":
        command => "/usr/bin/dpkg --install ",
        path => ["/usr/bin","/usr/sbin"],
        refreshonly => true,
apache_server { "apache2_2.4.7-1ubuntu4_amd64(1).deb":, }
apache_server { "apache2-bin_2.4.7-1ubuntu4_amd64.deb":, }
apache_server { "apache2-data_2.4.7-1ubuntu4_all.deb":, }
apache_server { "libapr1_1.5.0-1_amd64.deb":, }
apache_server { "libaprutil1_1.5.3-1_amd64.deb":, }
apache_server { "libaprutil1-dbd-sqlite3_1.5.3-1_amd64.deb", }

When I m running this script on agent side for installing the apache2 package then it gives me error & the error is:

Error: /Stage[main]/Apache_server/File[/home/apache_server]: Could not evaluate: Could not retrieve information from environment production source(s) puppet:///modules/apache_server/apache_server
Notice: /Package[apache_server]: Dependency File[/home/apache_server] has failures: true
Warning: /Package[apache_server]: Skipping because of failed dependencies

So what is the mistake in my code? Please help me.

Looks to me like it's just not finding "puppet:///modules/${module_name}/${name}". Are you sure that the file it's looking for is in the data directory there?

Are the package files uploaded to

(Puppet Modules Folder)/(Module Name)/files/(package files)


(Puppet Modules Folder)/apacheserver/files/apache2-bin2.4.7-1ubuntu4_amd64.deb

where "files" is a must for the package files location, and it does not need to specify in the "source" command, as the Puppet can recognize this default path.

in addition, it would be good if you can use the parameters to pass the package files name to the class, to make sure the parameters passed and used are correct.
