Looks like you have saved an object with a namespace (the MASS namespace)
as its environment. There is not much documentation available about
such situations, but see
for a sketch.
I suspect you got that message last time you saved, and then you were
surprised when you had forgotten the warning.
Have you got a modified version of a MASS function in there?
In any case, the advice still applies: the current MASS will load up mva
which is what is needed, so update.packages().
