Error installing puppetlabs/apt module from a tarball

I am installing puppetlabs-apt module as a dependency to another module in a CentOS 7 server. The server does not have internet acces so I downloaded the tarball from puppet forge, copied it to the server and ran puppet module install with no dependencies as I've done with all other modules:

# puppet module install /root/install/puppet/puppetlabs-apt-2.1.0.tar.gz --ignore-dependencies

And get the following error:

Error: Could not install module 'puppetlabs-apt' (???) No version of 'puppetlabs-apt' can satisfy all dependencies Use puppet module install --ignore-dependencies to install only this module

I thought I did what the second sentence on the error says to do, "Use puppet module install --ignore-dependencies to install only this module".

Can someone please point me in the right direction?

What do the other modules (those having puppetlabs-apt as dependencies) state as the minimum version required? Do you fulfill the requirements?

Rabbitmq is the only module I've installed that requires this dependency. I'm using puppet 3.7.5, which is compatible with puppetlabs-apt.
