Forum Thread: 'Metasploit Requires the Bundler Gem to Be Installed' Error

I have been getting this error while running './msfconsole'.

root@keller-desktop:/opt/metasploit-framework# ./msfconsole
* Metasploit requires the Bundler gem to be installed
$ gem install bundler

I have searched the net and performed the following trobleshooting but with no luck.

Post-install message from bcrypt-ruby:

#######################################################

The bcrypt-ruby gem has changed its name to just bcrypt. Instead of
installing `bcrypt-ruby`, you should install `bcrypt`. Please update your
dependencies accordingly.

#######################################################"

I have also tried " gem update --system", "sudo apt-get install rubygems"
well basically eveything i could think of. The result is still the same.

Can someone help me with this issue.

I have found another way to fix it, but it's not the best; if you try to install the "metasploit-framework" ---> $ apt-get install metasploit-framework it will give you an error about some ".lock" folder.

But if you take the source code of this famous ".lock" folder from --> github.com/rapid7/metasploit-framework/blob/master/Gemfile.lock

and you remplace it with the new one token from the link under /usr/share/metasploit-framework/Gemfile.lock
then try $apt-get install metasploit-framework
it will defenetly work.

Okay now i have another issue. While firing up Metasploit it shows an error that the factorygirl is missing.

So as suggested i tried to run 'bundle install'

so i checked my ruby and gem versions.

tried to install factorygirl version '4.2.0' individually

NOW WHAT DID I MISS. Why is METASPLOIT toying with me like this.....???
HELPPPPPP.....

root@kali:/usr/share/metasploit-framework# msfconsole
Could not find actionpack-4.0.13 in any of the sources
Run `bundle install` to install missing gems.
root@kali:/usr/share/metasploit-framework#

I am getting this error, please help. :(

Had the same issue with gem and bundle on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS - I solved the issue by issuing this command
sudo gem install -g

It takes a while to install so be patient as it does seem like it is not working.
Metaspoilt install is tricky - now for the installation of Armitage.
