According to CRAN:


The 'adk' package has been archived, so it is likely that you did not actually install the package and should have received an error message:

Warning message:
package ‘adk’ is not available (for R version 3.3.1) 

presuming that you are using the current stable release of R.

A search using http://rseek.org would suggest that the test is available in other packages on CRAN.

You may also wish to search the R-Help archives to see frequent discussions on the utility (or primarily the lack thereof) of normality tests...
