file link 'quasiquotation' in package 'rlang' does not exist and so has been treated as a topic

When I updated my copy of dplyr, I got a series of warnings about missing files in other packages: rlang, dbplyr, etc.

E.g.: "file link 'quasiquotation' in package 'rlang' does not exist and so has been treated as a topic"

The package can be opened and appears to be working correctly. What do these warnings mean? Should I be concerned about them?

Thanks in advance for any clarification of the above.

I also use R 3.6.3 on Windows 10 and I don't get any warnings while loading the latest dplyr version, so it is not normal behavior.

Can you try restarting your R session with Ctrl+Shift+F10 and then updating your packages with this command?

update.packages(repos='', ask=FALSE, checkBuilt=TRUE)

Thanks, Mara. I assume from the discussion, much of which is beyond me, that there is no problem for me with all these messages. It's a problem with how the packages are assembled. Is this correct?

An excellent summary! (Much of it's over my head, too :slightly_smiling_face:)
