It looks like puppet is not configured properly. Follow this proper installation guide.

first where the puppetserver is installed i.e.., VM configurations basically if VM RAM size is above 2gig then it wont popup any error message if the size is below that 2gb then it shows you can modify it by going

$ vi  /etc/default/puppetserver

JAVA-ARGS="-xms2g-xmx2g -XX:maxpermsize:256m"

need to change if your ram size is less than 2gig

JAVA-ARGS="-xms256m-xmx256m -XX:maxpermsize:512m"
