I have used GCDquery() (from library "TCGAbiolinks" ) for months now with no problems, but now the following:

library("TCGAbiolinks")

PreClin<-GDCquery(project="TCGA-BRCA",data.category = "Clinical",barcode = Breast_Tumor_barcodes)

returns the following error:

Error: Column index must be at most 7 if positive, not 8
In addition: Warning messages:
1: Unnamed `col_types` should have the same length as `col_names`. Using smaller of the two. 
2: In rbind(names(probs), probs_f) :
  number of columns of result is not a multiple of vector length (arg 1)
3: Unknown or uninitialised column: 'project_id'. 
4: Unknown or uninitialised column: 'project_id'. 

 

I have no idea what has changed nor how it happen. Please help as soon as you can.

Use this: This should work

query <- GDCquery(project = "TCGA-BRCA", 
                  data.category = "Clinical")
GDCdownload(query)
clinical <- GDCprepare_clinic(query, clinical.info = "patient")

I also "suddenly" encountered an error in GDCquery today. However, installing the version currently available on github solved my problem. You may find that version at the following link:
