So my entire suite of tidyverse packages has decided it will no longer load. I did not do anything or change anything and suddenly scripts that worked last Wednesday are no longer working today.
Here is just a sample of the errors I am getting, when I try to load ggplot2:
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘ggplot2’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]): namespace ‘pillar’ 1.2.2 is being loaded, but >= 1.3.1 is required
So then I tried to install 'pillar' and got this
installing the source package ‘pillar’ trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/src/contrib/pillar_1.4.2.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 228815 bytes (223 KB) downloaded 223 KB 'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. Warning in install.packages : running command '"C:/Program Files/R/R-34~1.1/bin/x64/R" CMD INSTALL -l "C:\Users\60129180\Documents\R\win-library\3.4" C:\Temp\Rtmp8qhyCz/downloaded_packages/pillar_1.4.2.tar.gz' had status 1 Warning in install.packages : installation of package ‘pillar’ had non-zero exit status
This seems to be an error of filepath specification, but it is a very recent one as the
install.packages() function has worked fine up to now. I find it so disconcerting when something that used to work suddenly no longer works and I have made no changes.
