[R-SIG-Finance] Convert double to date

Hi all, what appeared to be an easy task turns into a mystery - at least
from my previous experience with other languages.
I queried some historical data from an exchange and stored into a double
2016-02-09 07:30:00 0.2897 0.2897
#### Please note above result has no header for the date/time column
My goal is to take the date, deduct one day and arrive at "2016-02-08".
So I tried converting into a date (with paste/without paste)
But I keep running into the same error message:
*Error in dimnames(cd) <- list(as.character(index(x)), colnames(x)) :
'dimnames' applied to non-array*
Can anyone please shed some light on that?
Many thanks in advance,
