I’m a new user of the mixOmics package in R and I’ve been reading a lot looking for a solution but nothing seems to help.
After installing the package and even after updating my R version, I’m still getting this error message and none of the data included in the package “it’s found”.
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘mixOmics’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
** namespace ‘rlang’ 0.4.12 is already loaded, but >= 1.0.0 is required*
Any idea of what’s happening?
Sorry to hear about your issue and the belated reply. This issue is indicative that the package
rlang is running an old version. Version 1.0.1 released a couple of weeks ago and is what the
mixOmics package requires. Updating packages is done independently of updating R itself. So, go into your RStudio and navigate to the ‘Packages’ window (I believe by default it’s the third tab in the bottom right section). There’s an update button. Ensure that
rlang is selected within the pop-up and update it. This should resolve your issue. If
mixOmics also needs an update, ensure that you update that too.
Failing this, give the following steps a try:
- Remove the
rlang package via the function
- Restart the
R session (Ctrl + Shift+ F10) and then shut RStudio down completely
- Reinstall the
rlang package via the call:
install.packages("rlang", dependencies = TRUE)
Hope one of these methods resolves your issue. Please let us know how it goes either way.
