Help installing Ruby versions with RBENV

Locally (mac os 11.2.3 intel), I’m unable to install any new ruby versions with rbenv. It’s very frustrating. I’ve been googling and trying things for hours to no avail. This is the error below. Please give me ideas on what to do:

rbenv install 2.7.3

While I am not on macOS and don’t use rbenv, I wrote about the differences between ruby-build (used here) and ruby-install, where the former uses a different way to install Ruby:

So I cannot really help you to dig deeper, but trying ruby-install (& chruby) might be an option?

This issue is related to ruby-build, so you can submit an issue there. To get more info, you can add -v to rbenv install command. For example:

rbenv install -v 2.7.3
