Gitlab installation - Ruby rail error

I'm using Ubuntu 16.10 and was updating my Gitlab from 6.8 to 7 and everything went wrong. Now I have removed it and is trying to install a new version but ran into a problem with Ruby.

When I try install it


$ sudo apt install gitlab


I get an error after some time:


Could not find gem 'rails (>= 4.2.7.1, ~> 4.2.7)' in any of the gem sources
listed in your Gemfile.


I have tried to run


$ sudo gem install rails


but this gives me another error:


ERROR: Error installing rails:
activesupport requires Ruby version >= 2.2.2.


I don't know what to do now...




I have started all over... Removed gitlab* and postgresql. Rebooted and installed gitlab again. Now I got another error:


Could not find gem 'pg (~> 0.18.2)' in any of the gem sources listed in your Gemfile.


Tried to install pg manually:


$ sudo gem install pg
Successfully installed pg-0.20.0


But still sudo apt upgrade gives the same error: "Could not find gem 'pg'

Answer Source

I gave up! I reinstalled the Linux server with the Linux LTS version and used the Omnibus package installation..

Problem solved!
