Error: "Could not find 'cocoapods'" while installing a Pod

I tried to use

pod install
in my project to implement SDK but it throws this error:

/Library/Ruby/Site/2.0.0/rubygems/dependency.rb:318:in 'to_specs': Could not find 'cocoapods' (>= 0.a) among 35 total gem(s) (Gem::LoadError)
Checked in 'GEM_PATH=/Users/admin/.gem/ruby/2.0.0:/Library/Ruby/Gems/2.0.0:/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.0/usr/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0', execute
gem env
for more information
from /Library/Ruby/Site/2.0.0/rubygems/dependency.rb:327:in 'to_spec'
from /Library/Ruby/Site/2.0.0/rubygems/core_ext/kernel_gem.rb:64:in 'gem'
from /usr/local/bin/pod:22:in `'

Does anyone knows what causes and how to fix it?


First of all Uninstall CocoaPods using sudo command.

Follow below steps :

  1. sudo gem uninstall cocoapods
  2. gem install cocoapods
  3. pod install

When you install again then do not use sudo command. You can find for sudo less installation from here.
