Digging into `could not fetch specs from https://rubygems.org/` error01 Apr 2020
I suddenly started facing this issue one fine morning when I tried to use a well maintained gem in a rails app. There was absolutely nothing changed per say anywhere in the codebase since I did last commit. The build passed on CI server.
I tried stumbling around for a solution but couldn’t figure out. I tried couple of solutions one by one mentioned below form StackOverflow, Github issues and other forums:
httpin Gemfile source URL
- Try to update gem
gem update --system
- Updated RVM to latest
ruby -ropen-uri -e 'eval open("https://git.io/vQhWq").readas per RVM doc to troubleshoot the issue but end up with following error
I tried it with different apps on my machine with different ruby and rails versions but same error.
Suddenly there is a message from inside that there must be problem with the internet. That unfortunate day my broadband network was down. I was using a hotspot from my mobile. I tried with my wife’s mobile as well but no luck. Both were using same service provider.
In the evening after spending hours, I managed to get the broadband connection back. I tried to install gem again and voila!!! The problem absolutely did not exist.
So first check your internet connection before looking into other solutions.
