Error in unloadNamespace(package) : 
  namespace ‘S4Vectors’ is imported by ‘AnnotationDbi’, ‘IRanges’ so cannot be unloaded
Error in library(pkg, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, lib.loc = lib.loc,  :

Any ideas?

Then, try again. Be sure to include the output of sessionInfo() if you continue to have problems.

Hello, I am having the exact same problem as the original user albeit trying to load a different library ("zebrafish.db0")

I tried the two commands you suggested, but this didn't seem to help I am afraid.

My sessionInfo() output is the following:

This problem occurs when I use RStudio. Try to use the terminal instead.
