Hi Juan Pablo,

We just updated R on malbec2 a couple of hours ago and kintr
has not been re-installed yet.

Please make sure that your package suggests knitr otherwise the
Single Package Builder has no way to know that knitr needs to
be installed before trying to run 'R CMD build' or 'R CMD check'
on your package.
