Rails 3.2: Trying to use 'Whenever' gem but log file keeps giving: Could not find multi_json-1.1.0 in any of the sources (Bundler::GemNotFound) error

I am trying to use the Whenever gem to schedule a weekly task for sending out an email. I first tested to make the email would actually be sent by making a method call every time a User was updated. So now, I'm trying to have the email sent weekly instead of with every update, however I keep getting the following error in my cron.log file:

Could not find multi_json-1.1.0 in any of the sources (Bundler::GemNotFound)

I've done quite a bit of research and haven't found anything yet, any help would be great. I'll post the relevant code below:


class WeeklyDigestTestMailer < ActionMailer::Base
  default from: "from@example.com"

  def send_email(user)
    @user = user
    @last_question = @user.questions.last.description

    mail to: @user.email, subject: "This is a test email"


def self.send_email_to_user


every 1.minute do
    runner "User.send_email_to_user", :environment => 'development', :output => 'log/cron.log'


source 'https://rubygems.org'

Your bundle is complete! Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a bundled gem is installed.


I've had similar issues on OS X. Mainly because of different versions of Ruby installed. Or the built-in version fighting with versions I've installed myself.

Things to check:

  1. type which ruby in a terminal
  2. does the output make sense with what you have installed?
  3. are you using any Ruby managers (like rvm or rbenv)?
  4. if so, check your paths in /.bash_profile or /.bashrc to see where they point. This link might help with installing and configuring rbenv.
  5. I use rbenv so I have this in my bash_profile before any other $PATH declarations to make sure it grabs those executables first:

    export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/bin:$PATH"

  6. what does gem env say? Is it the right path?
  7. I run Ruby 1.9.3 locally but have to deal with 1.8.7 remotely because of issues with our hosting company so I have both versions installed locally. I forget to update the bundle install for the right version of Ruby command and scratch my head when I get errors like the one you are seeing. Hopefully you don't have this problem, but I'm just pointing it out in case it leads you down the right path.
  8. does bundle exec rails console or bundle exec rails server do the same thing as rails console and rails server respectively?
  9. If they don't, where are you installing the bundles? Simply bundle install or bundle install --path vendor/bundle?
Hopefully some of this will help you pinpoint the problem.

If you're getting desperate, remove the built-in version of Ruby and install a fresh version with either rvm or rbenv (I prefer rbenv after having lots of problems with rvm) and try again to see if that works.
