[R-pkg-devel] Package required and available but unsuitable version: 'stats'

Hi Jernej,

The check errors you get are for older releases of R (3.3.2 and 3.3.3). The issue arises from your requirement in DESCRIPTION that the version of stats should be 3.4.0. Therefore, the solution to your problem depends on whether you really need this requirement on the version of stats or not: if you don't, simply lower the requirements to whatever you need; if you do, then this check error is valid, in the sense that you don't want users to use your package if they don't have the appropriate version of the stats package.

Note that if the latter applies, you should probably change your requirement on the version of R itself: currently you're requiring 3.1, which clashes with you're requiring 3.4 for stats.

Subject: [R-pkg-devel] Package required and available but unsuitable version: 'stats'


recently, my first R package dendroExtra
<https://cran.r-project.org/package=dendroExtra> was accepted on CRAN. I
still must fix one problem that is given by CRAN checks

It says: Package required and available but unsuitable version: 'stats'.

I see that probable I did not correctly import the stats package. If I
remove the 'stats' package, I get an error in R CMD check. Is there any
suggestion how to properly solve the issue? How to properly import stats

Thank you for your help.

Bests, Jernej
