Hey everybody,

I'm trying to use the qvalue() function, but I'm getting this error message when I try to load the "qvalue" package: 

Error in get(method, envir = home) : 
  lazy-load database '/usr/local/lib/R/3.3/site-library/qvalue/R/qvalue.rdb' is corrupt
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In .registerS3method(fin[i, 1], fin[i, 2], fin[i, 3], fin[i, 4],  :
  restarting interrupted promise evaluation
2: In get(method, envir = home) :
  restarting interrupted promise evaluation
3: In get(method, envir = home) : internal error -3 in R_decompress1
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘qvalue’

I'm guessing there's an issue with how the package was installed, even though I'm pretty sure I used the right lines:


I tried uninstalling (through R Studio - remove.packages() ) and reinstalling, but that didn't work. I've had other packages from Bioconductor work, and so I don't know why I'm having issues with this one specifically.

Additional info: Version 3.3.1. Fairly new to R.

Did you fully terminate your R/Rstudio session before restarting and issuing library("qvalue")?  Typically the R_decompress1 error occurs when inconsistent package images are in use/installed.
