Today while doing “bundle update” my server started to throw weird error.
Somehow I was not able to relate it to bundler and doing
$ gem update updating installed gems ERROR: While executing gem … (ArgumentError) marshal data too short
explained that gem specs on the server is corrupted. I still need to figure out the reason why that happened in first place.
This error kept popping up – no matter what commands I wanted to run with rubygems (update, update –system, install…)
Googling did not give any solution on this topic. I had a feeling it is messing with
~/.gems directory - and found out to be true.
I deleted all entries inside the
~/.gems directory. I had to just just reinstall all my gems.
Any better ways to solve this problem ?
