The puppet master install is failing with error "There was an error running the installation." After checking logs it fails on "STEP 4: INSTALL PACKAGES" after command:

* yum clean all --enablerepo=puppet-enterprise-installer --disablerepo=''

I had this very same problem today (and ["BIG CAVEAT"] without really knowing what I was doing), I went into the 'utilities' script and found the line with;

yum clean all --enablerepo=puppet-enterprise-installer --disablerepo='*'

and reversed the enable/disable options to the following;

yum clean all --disablerepo='*' --enablerepo=puppet-enterprise-installer

This change has allowed the installer script to carry on past this problem but as its my first Puppet Master install I'm yet to verify if the complete install is actually then successful or not.
