WCM System Update

Description: Updates your Vagrant & Puppet powered server with the latest apt-get package list. It removes no longer needed packages and fixes broken ones, both using apt-get. Finally it installs the latest versions of the following packages.

  • yum (only CentOS)
  • make
  • curl
  • chkconfig

The module on the Puppet Forge.


Open your preferred console/terminal/bash/shell

puppet module install kaiser-systemupdate --target-dir puppet/modules --debug --verbose

If you want to reinstall it, use the --force argument as well.


In your main site.pp file, simply add.

include systemupdate

Nothing else to do.

To ensure that it runs before any other Classes during provisioning, add it like this:

# @example Dummy code
-> Package['apache2']

Not much else to say here. Have fun.
