       The “spec” files  Ruby directory: *C:\Ruby187\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\specifications*, contains something like this: s.date = %q{2011-10-13 00:00:00.000000000Z} Then delete the 00:00:00.000000000Z part: s.date = %q{2011-10-13}

    Invalid gemspec in [/var/lib/gems/1.8/specifications/chronic-0.6.4.gemspec]: invalid date format in specification: “2011-09-09 00:00:00.000000000Z”

    The simple fix to such kind of problem is to navigate to the file.. for eg.

    Step 1. cd /var/lib/gems/1.8/specifications
    step 2. open the file(chronic-0.6.4.gemspec) in editor of ur choice… (gedit chronic-0.6.4.gemspec)
    step 3. change the s.date = %q{2011-10-13 00:00:00.000000000Z} to s.date = %q{2011-10-13}
