Trying to install the gem librarian-chef on Ruby 2.1 results in an error. It works on 2.0. It seems to fail on different gems each time. It even failed on a Java version of Pry even though this is MRI.

    I'm getting the exact same error. Did you find a fix by chance? Brand new installation on OS X Mavericks using RVM.

    Same issue with ruby 2.1.0 and rbenv doing 'gem install chef'.

    I had a similar issue when trying to install rails. Running gem update --system seemd to fix everything

    Thanks andham, had the same problem and that did it. RubyGems itself was out of date, perhaps because of the fresh install.
