Error in DESeqDataSetFromMatrix()

Hello, I'm having trouble using DESeq2 and I'm not sure why because the code was working before. I think maybe some packages got updated or something that aren't compatible? But not sure how to fix it. For example, I can't making a DESeq2 object, such as with the code below (when before today it was fine).

# previously I made a DESeqDataSet object without issue using this code
dds <- DESeqDataSetFromMatrix(countData = round(genecounts), 
                              colData = metadata,
                              design = ~ genotype + treatment + genotype:treatment)

When I do try to run it, I get the following error: Error in MatrixGenerics:::.load_next_suggested_package_to_search(x) : Failed to find a rowRanges() method for RangedSummarizedExperiment objects.

I also cannot run other functions such as:

vsd <- vst(dds, blind=TRUE) # I have a dds object saved to the environment

When I try, I get a similar error message: Error in MatrixGenerics:::.load_next_suggested_package_to_search(x) : Failed to find a rowRanges() method for DESeqDataSet objects.

Does anyone know how to fix this? It seems like there's an error with rowRanges() missing, but I can't find much information on it. Thank you.
