RubyGems not updating properly

At times, i have noticed that running the:
sudo gem update—system
command does not properly update rubygems. It will say that everything is up to date.

This has something to do with the way rubygems was installed on the machine. For example, if you installed rubygems with macports, it is possible that the macports package was slightly broken for this update procedure.

If this happens to you, you can still up date rubygems like this:

sudo gem install rubygems-update
sudo update_rubygems
