Metasploit Update: Error In Bundle Install ( nokogiri 1.6.8 )

Metasploit was working fine until this morning when I updated it with

msfupdate
, then all went to heck.

Typing
msfconsole
Now gives me this error:

Could not find nokogiri-1.6.8 in any of the sources
Run bundle install to install missing gems.


I went and typed
bundle install
. It was going fine until this happened:

An error occurred while installing nokogiri (1.6.8), and Bundler cannot
continue.
Make sure that gem install nokogiri -v '1.6.8' succeeds before bundling.


I started searching and came across this, which suggested that I should run
bundle config build.nokogiri --use-system-libraries


But again, nothing. I also tried
gem install nokogiri -v 1.6.8
. I also tried even older versions:
gem install nokogiri -v 1.6.0
.

I'm using Kali.




EDIT: I think the solution is that I should reinstall Kali; One thing i learned from all this is to NEVER update MSF :D

Answer

@RUser98 --

I found this answer on the Unix Stack Exchange site maybe it will help you?

If you get a error installing nokogiri-1.6.8 try to:

sudo apt-get install libxslt-dev libxml2-dev zlib1g-dev --yes

I've also had numerous issues with installing/updating Metasploit on Kali each time something new so I feel your pain
