ggbio used to work perfectly fine for ages but recently I re-installed ggbio and I encounter this error:

Registered S3 method overwritten by 'GGally':
method from
+.gg   ggplot2


Which makes the console stuck forever in the RStudio. I tried the same thing on my sister's MacBook and had the same error.

I used the following to install the packages:

install.packages("ggplot2")
BiocManager::install("ggbio")
library(ggbio)


To resolve the problem, I re-installed both R, all RFrameworks, and RStudio at least 3 times but still, the same problem occurs after installing ggpolt2 after ggbio. Things go back to normal if I remove either ggplot2 or ggbio. I use R-4.0.3, RStudio v1.3.

I can't copy sessionInfo( ) because the console doesn't work anymore.

Is it possible that ggbio is pulling in an outdated version of GGally and overwriting the core functions of ggplot2 (such as +.gg)?

I'm stuck with this problem for 4 days and not sure how to resolve it.

Thanks, Batool

Unfortunately, many problems in R package installation are MAC-specific (and I have never owned a MAC). R Studio adds another level of complexity on top of this, and I almost never use this, either. What were the error messages, do you know? - you have not shown them. If you do the usual thing and restart your computer to clear the cache and then install just ggbio via BiocManager::install("ggbio") and from within the standard R environment, what happens?

Thank you Kevin Blighe for your reply. There wasn't any error message during the installation but after it's installed, it shows this message when it's loaded with library(ggbio):

Registered S3 method overwritten by 'GGally':
method from
+.gg   ggplot2


and then the console doesn't work anymore, stuck forever. Unfortunately, I only have a Mac machine. As I mentioned, I cleared all the cache, uninstalled R and R Studio at least 3-4 times but the same problem keeps going. This time, I didn't install RStudio on my machine but still got the same message.

How long have you waited for it to finish? I'm wondering whether it only _seems_ to be stuck forever.

I tried two different machines (Mac), waited for 48 hours for the console to go back to normal, removed everything, and re-installed R and ggbio multiple times. I spent at least 3 days trying to figure out the problem before I posted the question.

This is sessionInfo():

Can I ask if you tried to re-install ggbio and loading it today library(ggbio)?
