Ruby could not be found due to exceptions:

# cat /etc/yum.conf | grep exclude

exclude=bind-chroot courier* dovecot* exim* filesystem httpd* mod_ssl* mydns* mysql* nsd* php* proftpd* pure-ftpd* ruby spamassassin squirrelmail*

This line was added with cpanel after installation.

And with this line "yum search ruby" of course could not found "ruby".

I deleted this line and "yum search" found out "ruby" in repository from "puppetlabs"

And Puppet was installed succesfully.
