I am starting a new project with RMD. However, I am unable to knit even the default html RMD. I open a new project, click file> new file> RMD (Document, HTML). I press knit, without changing any of the default code.
This is the error:
Error in strsplit(Sys.getenv("R_LIBS")) :
argument "split" is missing, with no default
Calls: .libPaths ... Sys.glob -> path.expand -> path.expand -> unlist -> strsplit
I have knit RMD documents in the past and have not knowingly updated R or made any major changes since that time. Seemingly suddenly, I have lost the ability to knit even the default html RMD in my local R IDE. Anyone have any suggestions?
