I believe that Vagrant uses its own embedded version of Ruby, which might be different from the system Ruby version.

You should be able to check the Ruby version used by Vagrant by running this command:

vagrant -v
vagrant plugin list

And then you can also try to upgrade to the latest version of Vagrant, as it may include a newer embedded Ruby version:

brew update
brew upgrade vagrant

Let me know how it goes!
