Is there any 3rd party repositories that keeps up to date puppet client versions? I am looking for a puppet 2.6.4 .deb package?

If by "third party" you mean "not the puppet developers", Launchpad has one for Natty Narwhal; the "Published versions" sections has links for e.g. puppet 2.6.4-2ubuntu1 in i386, puppet 2.6.4-2ubuntu1 in amd64.

Official up to date version can be found from Debian Wheezy (testing) repository at http://packages.debian.org/wheezy/puppet.

You don't mention the distribution you use, but here's instructions for Debian Squeeze.

How to use up to date version of Puppet in Debian Squeeze (stable)?

Create a file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20release with content:

APT::Default-Release "stable";

Create a file /etc/apt/preferences.d/20puppet with content:

Package: *
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 1

Package: puppet
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: puppet-common
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: puppetmaster
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 1001

Package: puppetmaster-common
Pin: release a=testing
Pin-Priority: 1001

Create a file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/20testing.list with content:

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ testing main

Run:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

mixing packages from testing into a stable release is a bad idea. especially is security is a concern –  stew Mar 23 '11 at 20:21

Debian backports has puppet 2.6.4 in their repository now.
