Dear Marc,

Thanks for your time and efforts.

It is not working. 

I have tried many times (rebooting, launching R from different directories,
starting new sessions, etc). I have no other R sessions running. 

remove.packages("org.Hs.eg.db") reports that no such packages in my library.


Best Regards,
