I am using R version 3.4.1 (2017-06-30), Bioconductor 3.5 and RStudio to use TCGAbiolinks package.

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")


Above are the code I used to install TCGAbiolinks package, but when I enter library(TCGAbiolinks)

The error showed up as

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘TCGAbiolinks’:
object ‘rbind.gtable’ is not exported by 'namespace:gridExtra'


Could anyone help solve this problem?

Thanks

It looks like this function was renamed in gridExtra two days ago, see https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/gridExtra/news.html

I guess it will take the TCGAbiolinks maintainer a couple of days to update the relevant lines, and get a new release through the BioC build system.  In the meantime, maybe you can manually install the previous version of gridExtra (version 2.2.1) and ignore requests to update it until a patch to TCGAbiolinks is released too.

Hi all, R newbie here. Any kind soul willing to provide the code for installing gridExtra_2.2.1? I'm using Rstudio.

Thanks so much

Unfortunately, I'm still getting the error message (see below) even after I've installed gridExtra_2.0.0 successfully when I try to then call library(TCGAbiolinks). I guess I'll have to wait for the TCGAbiolinks to be updated too....

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘TCGAbiolinks’:
object ‘rbind.gtable’ is not exported by 'namespace:gridExtra'"

Yes until TCGAbiolinks updates their NAMESPACE file, this ERROR will occur.
