I tried downloading the gem locally , still the same error

gem update --system

How did you install RubyGems? That version number is pretty old, the current being 1.3.5.

I take it from your ‘I couldn’t install any gems’ comment, that you tried to install bundler and it failed?

If that’s the case, I would uninstall whatever you did to get a .9 version of RubyGems, and then follow the directions here:

install ruby
gem update
gem update system
ruby -v
gem install rails
rails -v
gem install mysql
if needed…

I believe in windows it's
gem update --system

not sure if this is required in *nix, but I've always had to add the
-- in windows.

Hope this helps...

Hi, I have some problems with that in Windows xp to, but after looking
around in the web the simpliest solution is:

1. Download Ruby Gem files from RubyForge =>
   http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126
2. Unzip de File, open the command Line and go to the directory in which
you unzip the files.
3. Execute the setup.rb file, typing "ruby setup.rb"

and that's it! you have ruby gems intalled and can intall rails simply
typing gem install rails

hope this can help you (sorry for the bad english)
