Hello everyone, 

Last days I tried to work with Poppr again. but I had some problem regarding loading  adegenet package.

I got this message:

Loading required package: ade4
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘adegenet’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
 namespace ‘htmltools’ 0.5.3 is being loaded, but >= 0.5.4 is required

I have read about the problem or similar issues, but nothing helped to solve it . 

I will appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot

Hello Mohamad.

To resolve this issue, you can try updating the htmltools package to a version that is compatible with adegenet. You can do this by running the following command in your R console: install.packages("htmltools"). This should install the latest version of htmltools and resolve the version conflict with adegenet. Once you have updated htmltools, you should be able to load adegenet without encountering any errors.

Alternatively, you can try installing a specific version of htmltools that is compatible with the version of adegenet you are using. To do this, you can use the install_version() function from the devtools package, like this: devtools::install_version("htmltools", version = "0.5.4")
