The agent is able to pluginsync, so communication between the agent and master is good. But the error Failed to submit 'replace facts' command for sandbox.puppet.vm means there is a communications/authorization problem between the master and puppetdb. If the master can't connect to puppetdb, then the agent's node and catalog requests will fail.

Look at the master and puppetdb log files to see if there is more information. For PuppetDB 3.2, see
