{splines} package gone missing?

rpruim

https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/splines/index.html claims the the {splines} package has been archived.  If I follow the link there to the archives, the newest version shown is from 1999.  It seems like something has gone wrong with this package.

I checked on another mirror and {splines} is missing there as well.

Re: {splines} package gone missing?

Thanks.  I actually sort of checked for this:


row.names(installed.packages(priority = "base"))
 [1] "base"      "compiler"  "datasets"  "graphics"  "grDevices" "grid"      "methods"   "parallel"  "stats"     "stats4"    "tcltk"
[12] "tools"     "utils"

But, of course, if the package is missing on my system (a newly installed 4.1 on an RStudio server), then it won’t be listed here.

I’ll have to figure out what went wrong with the install.  I’ll probably start by having our sysadmin simply reinstall R 4.1 and hope that that takes care of the problem.

Looks like profile is missing as well.

It is part of base R, so comes with the R sources:

splines is 'recommended' ( not sure about capitalization), not "base'

Re: {splines} package gone missing?

rpruim
Thanks everyone.

We are already back up and running.  We just did a redo of the install and started from scratch.  Actually, not quite from scratch since the packages in /usr/local that I had updated were not harmed.

I’m guessing this was all a side effect of an attempt to clean up from someone previously having installed contributed packages in amongst the base packages.  I’m guess splines got caught in the dragnet when cleaning up the mess.
