gem fails to install valid gems
I'm not able to reproduce this, but many people have reported it on occasion.
$ gem install bundler ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'bundler' (>= 0) in any repository ERROR: Possible alternatives: bundler
Can anyone confirm this?

Like I said, I'm not able to reproduce the issue, even after a
gem sources -c. The issue I'm pointing out here is that the error reported on the original issue is completely stupid and wrong- it should never be printed, no matter what the circumstance. Unfortunately, unless someone can figure out how to reproduce it, I see no way to make headway.

I periodically have similar but not the same issue.
gem install rails
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'rails' (>= 0), here is why:
Unable to download data from https://rubygems.org/ - SSL_connect SYSCALL returned=5 errno=0 state=SSLv2/v3 read server hello A (https://rubygems.org/latest_specs.4.8.gz)
ERROR: Possible alternatives: rails
gem sources shows me https://rubygems.org
I work with Windows system, ruby both version 1.9.3p0, 2.0.0p0, gem version 2.0.3, OpenSSL 1.0.1e(11 Feb 2013)
gem update also doesn't affect rails gem (while many other gems updated properly) and doesn't even show me that rails have more recent version (no error message at all).
If I explicitly select that I want update rails(gem update rails), updating works.
To be more complete, switching -v didn't solve my problem. Before that issue I've installed prerelease version of rails. I've tried to gem install rails with this prerelease version installed and with this version uninstalled.

I for one have got this error.
I have no idea what to do to solve it, and/or what the significance of it is. I've just installed ruby on windows 8 to run a project that I work on. I have installed a couple of gems, and now can't.
