Удачи.

What can be the cause of the error? How can I tackle it?

Thanks.

Just install Debian’s ruby1.9.1 package, which is really ruby 1.9.2.

The patch level is different. It’s critical for some applications.

I think, I have to avail myself of your advise.

Thanks, Iñaki.

You can try installing the Debian Sid package which is 1.9.2.180-2:

Well, then do the update the right way, namely

apt-get source ruby1.9.1
download the new version into a tarball (let’s call it ruby1.9.2pXXX)
cd ruby1.9.1-1.9.2.180
uupdate …/ruby1.9.2pXXX.tar.gz
cd to the new directory
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
