Is there a copy of Radiant in vendor/radiant?
If not, check which version of the radiant gem you have and copy the
source to vendor/radiant.
If things are screwed up, you may not be able to run rake tasks
without running into errors like these. So putting a copy of Radiant
in vendor/radiant will at least freeze the initialization to that
copy. Radiant looks there first before looking to the gems you have.

Don't attempt to update Rails for the project.
It appears as if you have Radiant 0.9.1, but run "gem list radiant" to
see what versions are on your server.
It's possible that the site was started with 0.8.1 (for example) but a
newer gem was later installed.
Try setting up vendor/radiant and let us know what happens then.
If you get different errors that means your changes did something. If
you keep getting the same error, then the problem might be elsewhere.
If you are successful in moving along, check out this gist where I
created instructions for upgrading https://gist.github.com/1540782
I'll update that with any details that you provide to help clarify the process.
