Any ideas? This is Windows 7 VM machine installation.

Thanks

  1. Try pingin google:

$ ping www.google.com

  1. If you need to set proxy then you can use following commands:
set http_proxy=http://your_proxy:your_port
set http_proxy=http://username:password@your_proxy:your_port
set https_proxy=https://your_proxy:your_port
set https_proxy=https://username:password@your_proxy:your_port
  1. Try replacing https from Gemfile:

source ‘http://rubygems.org

  1. Best of luck

Switch to Ubuntu?

Apart from that please don't post images, copy/paste the text here instead. I had to re-type the error message in order to google it for you. This showed up several potential like hits including

I am assuming, since you did not say, that you have not seen those.

Windows builds of ruby often have these certificate problems (I'm not sure why this occurs). The railsgirls install guide has some steps to fix this that have worked for me in the past:

Hello Dave,

Try following the steps below to resolve the issue. Let me know if this works for you.

Try performing the Install using update packages

Now that RubyGems 1.8.x, 2.0.x and 2.2.x have been released, you can manually
update to those versions.

First, download the proper version of RubyGems for your installation (eg.
if running version 1.8.28, download 1.8.30).

Note: To find the version of RubyGems you’re using, please run gem --version in
the command line.

You can find download links at GitHub under
Releases.

Now, locate rubygems-update-X.Y.Z.gem where X.Y.Z will be the matching
version for the version of RubyGems you need to update:

  • Running 1.8.x: download 1.8.30
  • Running 2.0.x: donwload 2.0.15
  • Running 2.2.x: download 2.2.3
    Download the file in a directory that you can later point to (eg. the
    root of your harddrive C:\)

Now, using your Command Prompt:

C:>gem install --local C:\rubygems-update-1.8.30.gem
C:>update_rubygems --no-ri --no-rdoc


After this, gem --version should report the new update version.

You can now salefy uninstall rubygems-update gem:

C:>gem uninstall rubygems-update -x
Removing update_rubygems
Successfully uninstalled rubygems-update-2.2.3


Cheers!
