Help, I'm being tortured by R. Just now I tried to load a package called RedTor. It generates
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘RedTor’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]): namespace ‘rlang’ 0.4.7 is already loaded, but >= 0.4.9 is required
This isn't just related to RedTor (a custom package). It's more pervasive and seems to be a namespace problem. If I can use the unloadNamespace() function, I can get things working.
I first try
Error in unloadNamespace("rlang") :
namespace ‘rlang’ is imported by ‘ellipsis’, ‘testthat’, ‘pkgload’, ‘pillar’, ‘lifecycle’, ‘htmltools’, ‘usethis’ so cannot > be unloaded
So I need to unload those, but those may in turn generate other messages.
It seems that this is related to what gets loaded in R. I run sessionInfo() and note what is loaded via a namespace (and not attached) - about 41 packages. Wish I knew how to keep these from loading. Any help appreciated. I have no .rdata being loaded as far as I can tell and no packages loading in .renviron.
