Intermittent phantomjs error during build

rails

phantomjs

#1

Some builds fail because of an error with phantomjs, checking this blog I change the circle config to install newest version but the error still happening.
When I get this error I just need to rebuild and everithing works well again (without any code change)
info:

  • Rails 4.2
  • Ruby 2.3
