I just ran apt-get update && apt-get upgrade and this is what I got:

What should I do?

  • Looks like a missing dependency. /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/bundler/resolver.rb:194:in 'block in initialize': undefined method 'add_root_vertex' for Molinillo::DependencyGraph:[]:Molinillo::DependencyGraph (NoMethodError) – fkraiem Jul 5 '16 at 18:40
  • so what should i do now? any suggestions? – viper strike Jul 6 '16 at 6:35

deb packages have some hooks defined, where scripts can be executed while the package is installed, uninstalled etc. It seems that in your case one such script fails, so the whole installation fails:

 /usr/lib/ruby/vendor_ruby/bundler/resolver.rb:194:in `block in initialize': 
    undefined method `add_root_vertex' for Molinillo::DependencyGraph:[]:Molinillo::DependencyGraph (NoMethodError)

So Bundler can't find a method in a library it would like to call. Judging from this issue at Bundler's Github repo, you might be using an outdated version of Bundler. So maybe upgrading Bundler would help. How exactly you need to do that depends on how you installed Ruby including Bundler (package system, RVM, rbenv, ...)

  • i did not install ruby seperately i guess it got installed the last time i did apt-get update && apt-get upgrade... n is there any way to solve this .. coz the last option i have is to reinstall the os – viper strike Jul 6 '16 at 6:34
  • Look which version of ruby you're using at the moment: bundler -v. Look whether it's the most current: gem list -r ^bundler$. The same way, check whether the molinillo is at the most current version: gem list -l molinillo and gem list -r molinillo. Those two are the ones that need to "interact" in your case, but it fails. – Henning Kockerbeck Jul 6 '16 at 9:14
  • You can upgrade a Gem with gem update name-of-the-gem. But be aware that something else might not be compatible with the newer version then, so no guarantees ;) – Henning Kockerbeck Jul 6 '16 at 9:17
  • Thanks for your help.. but i just reinstalled the os n then did an update.. n everything works fine now😁😁.. ... – viper strike Jul 6 '16 at 19:15

I had the same issue in Kali. Removing dradis fixed it for me.

apt-get remove dradis

I had same issue with Kali, but dist upgrade solved it.

apt-get dist-upgrade

There came up some errors about dradis during the upgrade, but it exited fine.
