How did you install R (RPM or compiled source) and did you re-install after the F22 upgrade, or just upgrade from F20 to F22 in place?

Since F20 EOL’d this summer, you would likely need to install current R RPMs built for F22, after the upgrade and/or rebuild R from source post the F22 upgrade.

My guess is a version incompatibility issue, where you are running a version of R built for F20 on F22.
