Section Number and Name: 


Describe the issue: 

Currently the installation instructions advise to enable the following repos:

subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rpms \
--enable=rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms \

This means that default NEW installations of 6.3 will install puppet3. This then means that hosts get puppet3 packages making the upgrade to puppet4 and puppet 5 more painful.

Suggestions for improvement: 

We should specify puppet4 by default in the documentation.

subscription-manager repos --enable=rhel-7-server-rpms \
--enable=rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms \

This basically flips the default, with some text like:

If you require puppet3 to be installed, please note that Satellite 6.3 is the last supported release for this version and that you will need to upgrade to puppet4 prior to upgrading to Satellite 6.4 which only supports puppet5.
