I had; it was when it failed that I posted the question. 

However, you've encouraged me to try again and that helped; the second attempt indicates that I had misunderstood the error message. It wasnt indicating a clash with an existing package name but a clash with an existing version number. Probable explanation: I have failed to update my DESCRIPTION file. 

Apologies for wasting folks' time. Again.
