I am sorry: I made an error earlier -- I made a mistake (used the plural instead of 'tikzDevices').
This was a false alarm. Apologies for that!
However, while I don't know if this would be possible to get from an error message but it would have been preferred if the message had said that there was no such package in R, rather than say that the package is not available for R version 3.2.3 which led me to believe that an updated version was not available.
However, at the end of a long day, it was my mistake: sorry again for that!
