I am using pathview to produce a native KEGG plot in PNG from results of gseKEGG analysis.

I have succesfully produced and downloaded PNGs of other pathways using the same command and dataset but get this error when running the specific pathway mmu04938

# i use the code below, where kegg_gene_list is my list of genes with entrez IDs and corresponding fold changes, and kegg_organism is 

parathryoid <- pathview( = kegg_gene_list,"mmu04928", species = kegg_organism)

# i get this error

Can anyone help me out with this? I have made over 10 other native KEGG plots and am stuck on the last one.

All my packages are up to date and I am using the latest version of R.
