Installed puppet/Python from the forge.
Unable to install a specific Python3 version using the name-epoch:ver-rel.arch as the version parameter.
repoquery shows me that the repo contains the 3.7.4 x86_64 version I’m looking for.
repoquery --show-duplicates python3
And executing “yum install python3-0:3.7.4-1.amzn2.0.4.x86_64” directly on the endpoint correctly installs the version i want, so i know yum is capable of doing this and is happy with the version i require.
But when passing “3-0:3.7.4-1.amzn2.0.4.x86_64” into the version param of the python class via Foreman it only ever chooses to install the latest version. Debugging the puppet agent shows that its only ever executing yum install python3, as so just install the latest.
It appears to be just ignoring or not handling anything after the name-epoch: bit of the version string.
Installs the version as instructed by the version string.
