 I am trying to install a package and am getting an unusual (to me) error:


Error in assign(".popath", popath, .BaseNamespaceEnv) :
cannot change value of locked binding for '.popath'
Calls: local ... eval.parent -> eval -> eval -> eval -> eval -> assign

I have modified the R_USER, R_LIBS, HOME, etc settings to try and get R and
knitr to behave. I have been successful there, but now this error. Any
thoughts on what this means and how to fix the issue would be welcomed.

I found a similar post that indicated clearing the R history worked to
solve the issue, but that did not for me.

It appears to be associated with the base package and ".popath is a
variable created at startup which records where the translations package in
use is." I have noted that the translations package does exist in my R_LIBS

I am not sure how to troubleshoot this error. Thanks in advance.
