gem --version

sudo gem update --system 1.6.1 --no-rdoc --no-ri
Latest version currently installed. Aborting.

sudo gem update --system --no-rdoc --no-ri

gem --version

I can go down from 1.6.1 to 1.6.0 with --system 1.6.0, but not up from 1.6.0 to 1.6.1 ...

    Have you tried just:

    gem update --system

    That should upgrade to latest 1.6.1 automatically.

    Yes, I have, and it works. But I want to nail down the version of rubygems, as we've had failed deploys because occasionally a rubygems update breaks some gem.

    So, can I report this as a bug somewhere ? Because as it is, we need to use a workaround to get it working.

    Closing this out since you made a bug, but Eric couldn't reproduce it:
