When I try to upgrade from Redmine 1.3.3 to 1.4.1

rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=development

asks me to run "bundle install" which produces the following error:

bundle install
Fetching gem metadata from
Using rake ( 
Using activesupport (2.3.14) 
Using rack (1.1.3) 
Using actionpack (2.3.14) 
Using actionmailer (2.3.14) 
Using activerecord (2.3.14) 

NoMethodError: undefined method `spec' for nil:NilClass
An error occured while installing activeresource (2.3.14), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install activeresource -v '2.3.14'` succeeds before bundling.

Any thoughts/hints?

Did you also tried gem install activeresource -v '2.3.14' as suggested?

Sometimes it does work.

#2 Updated by Dominik Stankowski about 7 years ago

Unfortunately, this did not help

$ gem install activeresource -v '2.3.14'
ERROR:  While executing gem ... (NoMethodError)
    undefined method `spec' for nil:NilClass
