Hi,

I have installed the R package "hgu133a.db" successfully, but when I want to load this package, I have gotten the following error:

> library("hgu133a.db")
Loading required package: org.Hs.eg.db
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'org.Hs.eg.db', details:
  call: match.arg(synchronous, c("off", "normal", "full"))
  error: 'arg' must be NULL or a character vector
Error: package 'org.Hs.eg.db' could not be loaded

Could anyone help me to resolve this problem?

Best Regards

Is "org.Hs.eg.db" %in% installed.packages()?

I am experiencing exactly the same problem - for me the following packages are broken / do not load:

  • GO.db
  • org.Hs.eg.db

And probably others.

EDIT:

Found that the problem is caused with RSQLite version 1.0.0, which is not backwards-compatible.

You can go to your R library folder (see .libPaths() and issue following:

wget https://github.com/rstats-db/RSQLite/archive/0.11.4.tar.gz
Rscript -e "install.packages('0.11.4.tar.gz', repos=NULL)"

This would go to github and download older version of RSQLite. Make sure you say NO to any further bioconductor prompts to upgrade packages!

I don't understand properly what I do?

Download the oldest version of RSQLite from this url in the path of .libPaths() and then run the following commands:

setwd(.libPaths())

install.packages('0.11.4.tar.gz', repos=NULL)

Is this true?

I've done it on unix-based machine, but your steps are probably the same.

Instead of the Rscript in the commandline, just run R and provide full path to the install.packages command:

install.packages('full/path/to0.11.4.tar.gz', repos=NULL)

I have tried to install package, but I get the following error:

I could install the RSQLite package successfully by converting .tar.gz file to a .zip file, but my problem about loading package "hgu133a.db" is also remained!

I am not sure if you're completely set-up to compile packages from source... or maybe the procedure is different on windows system - not sure!
