ruby-on-rails - tutorial - railties rails 5




Bundler could not find compatible versions for gem “railties” for Rails 4.0.0 (4)

I am trying to upgrade to Rails 4.0.0, and I changed the gem versions of sass-rails and coffee-rails. I need to resolve this gem conflict between rails and coffee-rails before I can upgrade to Rails 4.

When I ran bundle update this is the output I got:

$ bundle update

Resolving dependencies..............
Bundler could not find compatible versions for gem "railties":
  In Gemfile:
    rails (= 4.0.0) ruby depends on
      railties (= 4.0.0) ruby

    coffee-rails (= 4.0.0) ruby depends on
      railties (4.0.0.rc2)

My Gemfile:

source 'https://rubygems.org'

gem 'rails', '4.0.0'

end

gem 'sass-rails', '4.0.0'

gem 'passenger'

  1. Delete the Gemfile.lock file
  2. refer here for basic gemfile changes
  3. run bundle install

Everything will work fine. :)


Also bundle update only allows you to update one gem at a time, which is hard if you are updating to Rails 4 and a whole lot of gems have to be updated at the same time.

I solved this by deleting the Gemfile.lock and doing bundle install.

This is of course assuming you have no conflicting explicit gem version in your Gemfile to start with. So if this fails, remove version numbers from the Gemfile.


Run gem update rails first, then bundle update


You have an outdated version of Devise, use Rails 4 compatible

gem 'devise', '~> 3.0.0.rc'

Also change coffee-rails to

gem 'coffee-rails', '~> 4.0.0'

and try doing

bundle update coffee-rails
