You need to copy the lines you have typed in to R and send them
exactly. The only way I get an error message like the one you
indicate is with the following:

> library(data)
Error in library(data) : there is no package called 'data'

There is no Data function in R so if you typed that you would get

> Data(Titanic)
Error: could not find function "Data"

So what did you really type?
