If you look at the help page for 'imageplot', you'll see that the first
argument is expected to be a "numeric vector or array". You're giving it
a list, as you could check for yourself by typing 'class(y)'. Your object
'y' doesn't have any dimensions and has length 1, which you'd see if you
typed 'dim(y)'.
All would work fine if you extracted 'y' from 'x' using 'y <- x[,1]' or
converted 'y' to numeric using 'y <- as.numeric(y)'.
