Gem does not find gems

gem install SOMETHING

always produces “Could not find SOMETHING (> 0) in any repository”.

This is what gem environment says:

RubyGems Environment:

  • VERSION: 0.9.4 (0.9.4)
  • INSTALLATION DIRECTORY: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
  • GEM PATH:
    • /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8
  • REMOTE SOURCES:

I have Ruby 1.8.6 running on Mac OS10.4 (Tiger).

Any help highly appreciated.

0.9.4 is an ancient version of rubygems.

You could try gem update --system but I don’t know if I would trust
that with such an old old version… you might want to go to the
rubygems web site, download the latest version and install it.

You’re running an old version of RubyGems. Please update.

Try “sudo gem update --system”

If it does not work, try manually update:
