Puppet could not retrieve catalog...

Some days ago I got an error on one of my puppet agents which I can’t really explain. Everytime I executed my puppet agent (puppet agent -t -d) I got the following error:

Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Could not intern from text/pson: "\xC2" on US-ASCII First of all I din’t get why this error was thrown. Some days before everything was still fine. In the end I figured out it was a version missmatch.

My puppet server was running puppet version 5 and my agent still version 4. After an upgrade of my agent to version 5 the error was gone and everything worked like expected.
