OK, I discovered what the problem was but ... Still amazed

In my YAML files I had some entries like this:

   ['vim', 'htop']:
      ensure: latest

It didn't work and gave an error that has been pretty difficult to 
understand. After changing the yaml to:

      ensure: latest
      ensure: latest

Everything works. I'll have to rewrite some parts of my hiera files, but at 
least I can apply the manifests in the nodes...
