so I've just started using Ubuntu a few days ago, started trying to get an IDE working for Ruby on Rails developement, downloaded/installed everything from scratch. I found out the first version of Ruby I had on here was 1.9.1 so I updated to 2.3.0 and now its throwing this error whenever I try to make a new rails.

/usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/dependency.rb:247:in `to_specs': Could not find railties (>= 0) amongst [bundler-unload-1.0.2, did

Try run:

gem install bundler
bundle update 

or maybe re-install rails:

gem install rails

If not working you can re-install the rails for your version of ubuntu in this link https://gorails.com/setup/ubuntu/16.04
