class { '::puppet_agent':
  certname        => "%{trusted.certname}",
  environment     => 'production',
  runinterval     => 1800,
  server          => '',
  collection      => 'puppet6',
  manage_repo     => true,

This will ensure latest version of puppet6 available in repository. Also will ensure the puppet.conf file have the correct parameters.
