The BDA "InstallHadoop" step of expansion fails at Hadoop::Installpkg2/Package with "Could not get latest version".

The example here is from a BDA V4.5 cluster expansion where the failing "InstallHadoop" step is at Step 9. The example failures when "Installing Hadoop Packages" during the "InstallHadoop" step look like:

Error [73162]: (//bdanode01.example.com//Stage[main]/Hadoop::Installpkg2/Package[cloudera-manager-agent]/ensure) change from 5.7.0-1.cm570.p0.76.el6 to latest failed: Could not get latest version: Execution of '/usr/bin/python /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/puppet/provider/package/yumhelper.py' returned 1: Traceback (most recent call last):

Additional symptoms look like:

1. The associated puppet agent log file, /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/pagent-bdanode01-<timestamp>.log shows "Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)" messaging like:

bdanode01.example.comPuppet) yum.Errors.RepoError: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml)
for repository: cloudera-manager. Please verify its path and try again
bdanode01 puppet-master[73162]:


2. It is observed that the packages raising the complaints already exist on all existing cluster nodes.  For example:
