Base on your setup and error, puppet agent is connecting to a puppet master that does not exist. if you just want to test puppet commands, you can use "puppet apply" command. Example below (this will run the Notify resource to display your OS family)

puppet apply -e "notify { $osfamily: }"

If you are just learning puppet, I highly suggest to start with puppet quest
