While trying to install puppet agent on ubuntu 18.04, I get this error, Can somebody help me with this?

Package puppet-agent has no installation candidate

This might be because your packages might not be updated.

Try to first run:

sudo apt-get update

Now run : 

sudo apt-get install puppet-agent

This will resolve the issue.
