I using image of Ubuntu Ruby on Rails 14.04. I am using user rails, which is already in image. I have added user as sudoer. I am trying to install ruby 2.2.4 using rvm but it is not working. It is showing that

rvm install 2.2.4

You can disable this warning with:    echo rvm_autoupdate_flag=0 >> ~/.rvmrc
