[Ruby 2.3.3] Make json gem dependency > 1.7.7
gem json 1.7.7 doesn't compile in distros nowadays . If this is not a hard dependency for arvados, will be good to have 1.8.x or even better 2.x version:

- Status changed from New to Resolved
arvados and arvados-cli gems accept 1.8.x.
New gems aren't published yet but as of 78ca1460d58172f4555409298968583cd2ee70a1 they also accept 2.x.
Hopefully then nobody has to be in the position of figuring out that "~> 1.7, >= 1.7.7" can be satisfied by manually installing 1.8.6.
