When I go to install aws-sdk using gem version 2.6.14 (chef embedded version), it loops for and fails to install. It just keeps pulling gemspec.rz files.
gem version seems to work just fine.

    This was working fine about 24 hours ago. The command used is:

    /opt/chef/embedded/bin/gem install aws-sdk -VV --no-rdoc --no-ri -v "3.0.1" --source=

    Same issue happens with other versions of ruby (2.4 and 2.5) and not 2.3.
