Problems with dplyr summarise function of the latest R version


The following never happen in my previous R version.

mtcars %>% dplyr::group_by(carb) %>% dplyr::summarise(N=sum(am==1)) Error in summarise_impl(.data, dots, environment(), caller_env()) : attempt to bind a variable to R_UnboundValue

The following is session information:

It may be a problem of older dplyr package: it seems that R_UnboundValue has been removed in dplyr 1.0.0 because not beeing part of the official R API.

So try to update your dplyr package from 0.8.4 to 1.0.0 (or downgrade your R). Related GitHub PR: https://github.com/tidyverse/dplyr/pull/4592

In R 4.0.0 with dplyr 1.0.0 your code seems to work properly.


Seems to be a tidyverse/dplyr issue for unbound values if you are using R 4.0. Probably updating the dplyr package to 0.8.5 or later may help? Refer to below
