Maybe you should try to reinstall ruby since underlying OS library has
changed?

followup.
i manage to find a workaround.

commented the ff lines on the corr files:

#cipher.rb
64 # class Cipher < Cipher; end
65 # deprecate_constant :Cipher

digest.rb
57 # class Digest < Digest; end # :nodoc:
58 # deprecate_constant :Digest

fyi, just in case.
