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
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.
