On a brand new puppet master running puppet 4.8.1 ( server v 2.7.2 ), I started seing exception messages such as this one :

[clojure-agent-send-off-pool-0] [p.d.version-check] Could not retrieve update information ( Connection timed out
at Method)

Coming from puppet 3.x, I am assuming that puppet now has an internal self-update check mechanism which attempts to contact the aformentioned URL ( which of course fails when the server has no Internet connection )

How can I disable such check ?

You should be able to disable this check by setting the product.check-for-updates setting in the /etc/puppetlabs/puppetserver/conf.d/product.conf file to false. For more information on this, see this page in the Puppet Server documentation.
