recipes for the dimensionality reduction methods failed in tidymodels package

Hi

I followed the procedure of parallel processing of different models in the tidymodels package (Chapter 16. Dimensionality Reduction), but got stuck at this step:

pls_rec <-
  data_rec %>%
  step_pls(all_numeric_predictors(), outcome = "Group", num_comp = tune()) 

I receive the error : 
Calling 'tune.spls'
Error: 'X' must be a numeric matrix (possibly including NA's) with finite values

My data looks like this:

Can anybody help me?

Not sure but try converting Group to a factor.

Thank you Max for the quick answer and for all you do for this community.
I found out that the package mixOmics caused the problem. When I unloaded it, everything worked perfectly.
