Yes it is the problem.  The message that you quote is from limma version
1.0.8, i.e., the last official BioC release, rather than from limma 1.2.4
which is the most recent development version.  You have apparently
"updated all the packages" simply by re-installing the last official
release of the packages.  If you want newer versions of the packages, you
have to install the development versions of the packages.
