I have always worked with the zoo package, that I have installed a long time ago. Today, I created a new R script, and ran library(zoo) and got the following error:

 > library(zoo)
 Error in library(zoo) : there is no package called ‘zoo’

Odd.. Still, I tried reinstalling the package using install.packages("zoo"), and get the following:

 > install.packages("zoo")
 Installing package(s) into ‘C:/Users/U122337.BOSTONADVISORS/Documents/R/win-library/2.15’
 (as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

The downloaded binary packages are in
    C:\Users\U122337.BOSTONADVISORS\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp404t8Y\downloaded_packages

When I try uploading the package, I get the error again that the zoo package doesn't exist.

I have no idea what's happening. I exited the GUI and restarted it, same problem. I have always worked with this package, and I have no idea why this is happening now.

Do .libPaths(), close every R runing, check in the first directory, remove the zoo package restart R and install zoo again. Of course you need to have sufficient rights.

R Studio Package Installation Not Recognized - General, When I try to run a package, R says that there is no package with the name though it has already said that it Error in bptest(mod.h) : could not find function "​bptest" won't work even with the package installed and attached. Set your default repositories. By default, R will only search for packages located on CRAN. You can include Bioconductor, R-Forge, and others by using the setRepositories() command from the console. To preserve this setting over sessions, you can also define this in your .Rprofile or other Startup file.

When you run

install.packages("whatever")

you got message that your binaries are downloaded into temporary location (e.g. The downloaded binary packages are in C:\Users\User_name\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpC6Y8Yv\downloaded_packages ). Go there. Take binaries (zip file). Copy paste into location which you get from running the code:

.libPaths()

If libPaths shows 2 locations, then paste into second one. Load library:

library(whatever)

Fixed.

Luckily, this is the case with only a small number of packages from CRAN and BIOC

I had this problem and the issue was that I had the package loaded in another R instance. Simply closing all R instances and installing on a fresh instance allowed for the package to be installed.

Generally, you can also install if every remaining instance has never loaded the package as well (even if it installed an old version).

  • Worked great! Thanks. Would you know what that happened in the first place?
  • Worked perfectly for me. I had same issues with package nloptr. Just a caveat: windows gave me a warning stating that R was still using the files, so I had to manually go into windows Task Manager and end all processes related to R (even after closing all R windows) to delete the package files.
  • What do you mean, paste into second one?
  • If by runnnign libPaths you get 2 locations, like: [1] location/one/something1 [2] location/two/seomthing2 then paste binaries copied from link that pops up after installing the package into location/two/seomthing2. It works for me.
  • Thanks! It turns out there's some really weird pathing issues with the Macports version of R, so I completely uninstalled the macports version, updated my dyLD_LIBRARY_PATH and R_HOME, and then installed R using a .pkg, which ended up allowing R to correctly find where the packages were. This helped me track down two different places that the install packages were going.
  • Glad to hear that.
