Ruby Stays 2.3.7 even though 2.6.5 is properly installed



I followed the exact same instructions to install 2.6.5 but the version still says 2.3.7.

Can anyone help?24%20AM


i am having a similar issue, except my ruby is 2.6.3p62


brew update && brew upgrade ruby-build

which returns the message:

warning: ruby-build 20200115 already installed.


log off and log back on, then try again.


prolly should have mentioned that i’d already tried that.

at the end of the day, it didn’t seem to make any difference…

thanks much for your reply, tho! (-:


i think the setting version command didn’t work because of path problems.

try this


i think what i found that eventually actually worked was not ignoring the little command suggestion mac os gave me when i first open a terminal window:

The default interactive shell is now zsh.
To update your account to use zsh, please run

cash -s /bin/zsh

this seemed to resolve a whole host of issues.


good to hear that it’s fixed.
