      Tested with puppet 4.7.0

      Description

      $ puppet module install --modulepath=/tmp/foo simp-simplib
      Notice: Preparing to install into /tmp/foo ...
      Notice: Created target directory /tmp/foo
      Notice: Downloading from https://forgeapi.puppetlabs.com ...
      Error: Could not install module 'simp-simplib' (???)
        No version of 'simp-simplib' can satisfy all dependencies
          Use `puppet module install --ignore-dependencies` to install only this module
      

      After much spelunking it turns out that one of the version-constrained dependencies was not yet released onto the forge.

      Expected outcome

      $ puppet module install simp-simplib
      Notice: Downloading from https://forgeapi.puppetlabs.com ...
      Error: Could not install module 'simp-simplib' (???)
        Installing would require herculesteam/augeasproviders_sysctl (>= 2.1.0 < 3.0.0) but it is not available.
          Use `puppet module install --ignore-dependencies` to install only this module
