Oxidized not starting after OS upgrade from Ubuntu 20.04.6 to 22.04.3


We upgraded OS to Ubuntu 22.04.3 and are struggling to get oxidized to work.

Due to this error we are unable to see the configuration of this device:

root@:/usr/local/bin# sudo systemctl status oxidized

This file was generated by RubyGems.

The application ‘oxidized’ is installed as part of a gem, and

this file is here to facilitate running it.

require ‘rubygems’

version = “>= 0.a”
str = ARGV.first
if str
str = str.b[/\A_(.*)_\z/, 1]
if str and Gem::Version.correct?(str)
version = str
if Gem.respond_to?(:activate_bin_path)
load Gem.activate_bin_path(‘oxidized’, ‘oxidized’, version)
gem “oxidized”, version
load Gem.bin_path(“oxidized”, “oxidized”, version)

Could someone please suggest what action is needed?

Thank you.

Try installing the gem again, it’s showing that oxidized isn’t in your path.
