Problem with rubygems

Help folks - for some time now I have been unable to download gems - I keep getting the following error message :-
" Unable to download data from https://rubygems.org/ - SSL_connect returned=1 errno=0 state=SSLv3 read server certificate B: certificate verify failed (https://rubygems.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz
)"
I seem to recall reading something about a change to the Gem repository - do I neeed to alter my "gem sources" ?

Hey, so I've seen this same issue pop up at least a couple of times today.

I know that the folks running rubygems.org had some problems with their
CDN's earlier.
But by the time I got around to trying I couldn't replicate this. I think
that with the CDN handoff things were a bit funky but everything seems ok
now.

If I see it pop up anywhere again, or if you let me know it's
still happening, I'll try to look into it some more.

Hello,

Just a friendly note. I only remember seeing this error when I attempted
to use Ruby in a Windows environment. I'm not sure if you're using Windows,
but if you are, you're likely to encounter errors and have to find
workarounds when using many popular gems. I found it much easier to
dual-boot into Ubuntu.

Without getting into a bunch of details or debate, that happened when
rubygems.org updated their certificate and Windows users didn't have a way
to fall back to openssl certificate-trust chain. All the current versions
of RubyInstaller have a rubygems that recognizes the new cert and shouldn't
be an issue. But, for the most part there aren't a lot of problems using a
Windows machine. People are working hard to make it work well. =)

Replace the ssl gem source with non-ssl as a temp solution:

Uh, no -- rubygems.org is SSL-only now.

OS? Versions of ruby, rubygems, openssl (if applicable)?

I've never had much Windows-specific trouble with Ruby, until lately --
when I try to install pry it keeps trying to install a version of pry
for a platform called "x86-mingw32" instead of "i386-mswin32" or
"i386-mingw32". The x86-mingw32 version doesn't exist.

Thanks Jeremy - I am indeed using Windows, I would love to be able to dual-boot into any of the common Linux distros, however, I can't find one that correctly enumerates my
SATA drives, neither hard drives, nor opticals!!!!

PS - this has onlt started quite recently, presumably due to the SSL server?

Thanks for that - worked a treat, all gems updated, albeit with the odd error.
