Solution

Using proxy server on a different network from which rails-assets still available.

For example, I've been using server instance in San Francisco data center via https://cloud.digitalocean.com Also tried Frankfurt region, but rails-assets still wasn't available to that region.

Check if rails-assets available to remote computer, should return 200 OK:

wget https://rails-assets.org/

> HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK

Create SOCKS proxy:

ssh -D 1080 -C -q -N root@CHANGE_ME_TO_IP

Install gems via proxy:

gem install csocksify
csocksify -g bundler bundle install
