In my mac mini I've running Catalina 10.15.7. I've also installed Xcode 12.4. Now as I'm using third party library I'm trying to install cocoapods in my mac. So I used this -

sudo gem install cocoapods

which I got from official website.

But I'm getting this -

I've seen this question but my ruby version is -

ruby 2.6.3p62 (2019-04-16 revision 67580) [universal.x86_64-darwin19]

I've also take a look in this but could not able to solve the problem.

Edit:
I've used this -

xcode-select --install

but got - xcode-select: error: command line tools are already installed, use "Software Update" to install updates

So, Is there any ruby dependency I've to install first or I just missed something?

After searching and trying different things I've solved my problem -

I've used -

brew cleanup -d -v 
brew install cocoapods 

Now I've installed cocoapod on my machine.

Edit:

I'm facing problem when I entered -

pod init

It gives me an error -

[!] Unable to locate the CocoaPods.app application bundle. 
Please ensure the application is available and launch it at least once.
Illegal instruction: 4

To solve this I've used -

pod setup

And Voilà!! It works!!

Run: cd $(xcode-select -p)/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/2.6/usr/include/ruby-2.6.0

Then run: sudo ln -sf universal-darwin20 universal-darwin19

Then finally install cocoapods: sudo gem install cocoapods
