How? Via 'sudo apt-get install r-cran-matchit', or using R?

/usr/local, so you did this using via 'R CMD INSTALL ' or from inside
R. Consider removing this directory and install the Ubuntu-supplied package. 
Also, you didn't mention whether this is an older install of matchit, or
whether you just did it.

Looks like a runtime error, possible due to mismatched libraries.

Possibly, the r-sig-debian list is also 'on topic' for Debian/Ubuntu questions.

Hth, Dirk

Hell, there are no rules here - we're trying to accomplish something.
