Hello, My command gives this error.

root@RR:/home/rails/sampleapp# gem install nokogiri -v ‘’

ERROR: Error installing nokogiri:
invalid gem: package is corrupt, exception while verifying: undefined method `size’ for nil:NilClass (NoMethodError) in /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/cache/nokogiri-

tried several ways to fix this but could not get it right. I am on the DigitalOcean 1GB RAM plan.

This error is often caused by the gem file not being downloaded properly. Generally, it can be resolved by simply deleting the gem file and reinstalling. E.g:

  • rm /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.2.1/cache/nokogiri-
  • gem install nokogiri -v ''
