What do you get when you type “gem env”?

Hello, a couple of questions that will help us provide you answers to
your problem:

  1. What version of Ruby are you using? (execute “ruby -v” in the
    console to get the answer)

  2. Why you manually downloaded the gems? are you behind a proxy?

Seems to me that you downloaded and extracted the gem contents and
are attempting to install them, but at the same time you’re receiving
errors from RubyGems about it.

Can you please attempt the following?

Outside any directory of any of the downloaded gems where put, please
try:

gem install rspec

That single command should connect to rubygems.org, download latest
information, find the gems, download and install them for you.
