[R-pkg-devel] Package submission failed with two warnings

Hi Farshad,

The error you get when compiling your vignette gives us a hint:

Error: processing vignette 'Rpvt.Rmd' failed with diagnostics:
package or namespace load failed for 'ggpubr' in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
 there is no package called 'data.table'

There is a long chain of dependencies here: if I write A -> B to say that package A lists package B as an Import (and therefore package B is loaded when package A is attached), we have

ggpubr -> rstatix -> car -> rio -> data.table.

I think the issue is that, since you list ggpubr in "Suggests", there's never a check that all its dependencies (and their dependencies etc) are installed, and therefore data.table was not installed before checking your package. (But I'm not sure exactly why ggpubr is installed but not all the dependencies.)

A solution would be to make your whole vignette fail "gracefully" when ggpubr isn't attached properly. Which is good practice anyway.

Hi Duncan,

I changed the version, recreated the package, and then tested it with the rhub::check_for_cran(). The function failed to create a summary for all the platform results together, however individual results are available in the following links.


you can also find the source code in the following link:

Thank you for the help!

For your first warning, see the CRAN policy:  "Updates to
previously-published packages must have an increased version. Increasing
the version number at each submission reduces confusion so is preferred
even when a previous submission was not accepted."

For the second, it's hard to say what's happening.  Is your package
online somewhere so we could try it on different machines?
