I run debian 9, and have installed packages puppet and puppet-master; they are listed as version 4.8.2. In the learning material I have found so far, I come across commands puppetd and puppetca - which I don't have. A search with apt-file only finds some bash-completion files that refer to these commands. Are things simply called something else in debian?

    I do not know the exact answer, but please note that Debian 9 contains Puppet4. But Debian 10 contains Puppet5 (and Debian 10 is the current stable Debian release) . Puppet's own current release is already Puppet6. Puppet major releases are know for their rather big changes (sadly, if you ask me).

  • It sounds like the documentation you are reading is not correct. CA operations are normally handled by the command puppet ca and the server Daemon is started with puppet master. Also as HKoof mentioned if you are just starting out i would strongly urge you to start with buster
