After upgrading a node to Puppet 3.0.0 from the Puppet Labs YUM repository, the node that gets upgraded throws a munging error:

I noticed that the file reported (in this error /var/lib/puppet/state/graphs) changes every time I try. It seems to always be a random file in /var/lib/puppet. Any idea what might be happening here?

Looks like you are picking up a 2.7.19 gem alongside the RPM -- does 'sudo gem list' show a Puppet gem installed?

The root cause of this is a feature where puppet now supports loading extensions from gems, see https://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/7788

You are indeed correct. I am actually using Razor to provision nodes now and it installs Puppet as a gem by default. But I am also using the puppetlabs-puppet module to later update Puppet and ensure the configuration is correct. Thank you for pointing this out! –  Andy Shinn Oct 1 '12 at 23:03
