Same for me.  Looking through the output of vignette
I noticed that both the ggplot and reshape packages have
a vignette called "introduction" in my case and either of
the following brings up the associated vignette (as opposed
to the error message):

vignette("introduction", "ggplot")
vignette("introduction", "reshape")
