From the NEWS for gridExtra 2.3:

Misc. cleanup for CRAN release

renamed cbind/rbind functions copied from gtable to cbind_gtable and rbind_gtable to avoid issues with generic method (different signature) more consistency in gtable-related functions

This suggests that the version of tcgabiolinks that you've installed is unaware that rbind.gtable has been renamed rbind_gtable within gridExtra. Remove your install of gridExtra using remove.packages and install version 2.2

And post an issue to the tcgabiolinks on github
