I was able to reproduce this problem. What happened is that you
installed "r-cran-rcpp" from the ubuntu repositories, which is a few
years old, and not compatible with the cran version of 'tibble'. You
should either reinstall Rcpp from CRAN, or, install the development
version of 'tibble' which resolves the issue.
