Upgrading R version because package function didn't work

First post, so please be gentle. May I share something I just learned?

I have been struggling for hours because my R code could not find a particular function in a package that is the whole purpose of the package. I closed and reopened RStudio, reinstalled the package, and got the same "could not find function x".

It turns out the issue was that my R version was too old. Upgrading the R version via the installr package was pretty painless and solved my issue.

So the moral is, don't let your R version become too obsolete.

Stay safe.
