“Successfully installed rails-4.2.1
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem ‘4.2.1’ (>= 0) in any repository”

Does anyone recognize this error message or understand what it is saying
I
should do?

That sounds like your Gemfile is actually requesting a gem called
‘4.2.1’
rather than version 4.2.1 of something.

Thanks that helps. So it was probably just the way I passed the
command…

This is what I typed “sudo gem install rails 4.2.1 --no-ri --no-rdoc”,
does
that look funny?

Should I be concerned about the contents of this error message “Could
not
find a valid gem” or is it simply nothing more than what you just said?

What I wanted to do was pass the command with head in it but I don’t
know
the syntax for that and I couldn’t find a reference to it that quickly.
Does anyone know the proper way to pass the command for get head?

You need to have “-v” in front of the version:

sudo gem install rails -v 4.2.1 --no-ri --no-rdoc

Other version specifiers might require quotes to keep the shell from
attempting input/output redirection. E.g.:

sudo gem install rails -v ‘>= 4.2.1’ --no-ri --no-rdoc

Thanks Rob,

At this point I got the version I wanted even with the incorrect syntax, I can
just leave it as it is?

Yes, of course, the response was basically to point out where your
command had done something that you hadn’t realized that you’d
requested. More of a lesson for the next time when you really might need
to request a version that’s not the “default” that would be installed.
