I think the Ruby case involved more:

“What, you’re not running version x of the dependency y but a newer
one? Ignore the fact that version x is vulnerable, because that’s
the one you *must* be using for my code! Ah, and no, the dependency
of package z of version x+1 of package y is not a problem, because
with out cool package manager you can install them in parallel!”

(Somewhat remembering and paraphrasing what I read on the Planet.)
