This package is broken, probably since ruby 2.4. There were at least two changes in ruby that need some adaption:

  • open-uri's open changed from modifying to using a separate method. I couldn't find any documentation of the change upstream, which is really frustrating.
  • gem deprecated the --no-ri --no-rdoc option in favor of a new --no-document option.

Here's a patch that gets pacgem working again (at least for the simple case of installing packages). It would be great if you could apply it :)
