When doing a dependency on a resource alias the puppetdb-terminus fails in the synthesize_edges method when caching the catalog.

The following code snippet illustrates the issue:

package { foo:
  ensure => installed,
service{ baz:
  ensure => running,
  require => Package[bar]

It fails silently, but with some debug output added I can see it fails with the exception

Puppet::Error: Invalid relationship: Service[baz] { require => Package[bar] }, because Package[bar] doesn't seem to be in the catalog

need to be


in Puppet 4.x.
