Error in namespaceExport(ns, exports) : undefined exports: … Error: package or namespace load failed


I recently updated R to the latest version (R version 3.1.1) and now I can´t run load packages. In the case of ggplot2, the error message after running library("ggplot2") is

*Error in namespaceExport(ns, exports) : undefined exports: ContinuousRange, DiscreteRange, abs_area, alpha, area_pal, as.trans, asn_trans, atanh_trans, boxcox_trans, brewer_pal, cbreaks, censor, col2hcl, comma, comma_format, cscale, date_breaks, date_format, date_trans, dichromat_pal, discard, div_gradient_pal, dollar, dollar_format, dscale, exp_trans, expand_range, extended_breaks, format_format, fullseq, gradient_n_pal, grey_pal, hue_pal, identity_pal, identity_trans, is.trans, linetype_pal, log10_trans, log1p_trans, log2_trans, log_breaks, log_trans, logit_trans, manual_pal, math_format, muted, parse_format, percent, percent_format, pretty_breaks, probability_trans, probit_trans, reciprocal_trans, rescale, rescale_max, rescale_mid, rescale_none, rescale_pal, reverse_trans, scientific, scientific_format, seq_gradient_pal, shape_pal, show_col, sqrt_trans, squish, squish_infinite, time_trans, trans_breaks, trans_format, trans_new, trans_range, zero_range Además: Mensajes de aviso perdidos S3 methods 'fullseq.Date', 'fullseq.POSIXt', 'fullseq.numeric', 'print.trans' were declared in NAMESPACE but not found Error: package or namespace load failed for 'ggplot2'*

For package BiodiversityR, the error message ends with

*Error: package or namespace load failed for 'BiodiversityR'*

I've tried several tricks like re-installing, updating, loading in previous R versions, including 32-bit versions.

Indeed, one or more of the dependend packages had to be updated.

I created a new empty library directory where I re-installed all packages and this solved the problem. Thanks!

My error was updating only ggplot2 update.packages("ggplot2") while I should have ran update.packages().


I often find simply retrying with require() works for some reason: require(BiodiversityR)
