			To suppress this message use:

> updateR()
Error in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]) : 
  there is no package called ‘stringi’

This error is telling you that you do not have the stringi package installed. you can install it by running install.packages('stringi')
