Default gem update --system errs


my windows pc is connected to the internet!
when i run the gem update --system i get again a time out error:

C:\Ruby\projects\blog>gem update --system
Updating RubyGems
ERROR: does not appear to be a repository
ERROR: While executing gem ... (Gem::RemoteFetcher::FetchError)
Errno::ETIMEDOUT: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond. - connect(2) (

this is quite frustrating, yet i am perfectly able to brow the site...

any idea?
