Error : package or namespace load fail

This error is seen upon using certain packages like readxl,tidyverse.

Here is the full error .Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in namespaceExport(ns, exports):
undefined exports: A1_to_R1C1, R1C1_to_A1, addr_col, addr_row, anchored, as.cell_addr, as.cell_addr_v, as.cell_limits, as.ra_ref, as.ra_ref_v, as.range, cell_addr, cell_cols, cell_limits, cell_rows, guess_fo, is_A1, is_R1C1, letter_to_num, num_to_letter, ra_ref, to_string, to_string_v

I am using the latest Cran 4.03. This issue occur after updating it.


A quick search reveals that this issue is occurring time and again without a clear cause... The most "helpful" post i could find was this one:

It seems they suggest things might be solved if you install RTools if you're on Windows and then try to install tidyverse again. I'm not sure, but it might be a try?

Hope this helps,
