Just got it to work - I guess the corrupted GEM was fixed.
Sorry to bother the list.

I couldn't find a support list for rubygems so my apologies in advance for posting to the developers list.
I have gems 0.8.11 and I attempted gem update --system and got the output below.
What do I need to do to make the update work?
Do I need to issue the command in the ruby home directory?
Should I just install rubygems 0.9 from scratch? Does that have any implications?
In fact, if I just do a "gem update" command, I get the same error (I believe that's because it's trying to install
the rubygem-update gem).
C:\eclipse\workspace>gem update --system
