Different error report: but I’ve been getting an error reported from winbuilder, but no error/code failures revealed in the log…

Running examples in 'umx-Ex.R' failed
The error most likely occurred in:


[example code with no error showing in the code…]

Passes release checks fine on MacOS with R 4.0.0 So, hard to debug…

Best, tim

Does this happen to anyone else?

Here is the error:

This typically indicates Rd problems.

 I'm new to R and this is my first R package.   Please help.   Much appreciated.
