I pasted some of the error/warning message into Google and among other things:


This might begin to explain what is happening. Is a data.frame created?

Subject: [R] problem loading spss-files

after updating R from 3.3.3. to 3.4.0 i cannot import spss-data files
anymore. for the european social survey (europeansocialsurvey.org) i get
this warning:
re-encoding from CP1252
Fehler in levels<-(*tmp*, value = if (nl == nL) as.character(labels)
else paste0(labels, :
factor level [3] is duplicated
Zusätzlich: Warnmeldung:
In read.spss(file, use.value.labels = use.value.labels, to.data.frame =
to.data.frame, :
//filepath/ESS7CH.sav: Unrecognized record type 7, subtype 18
encountered in system file

using the package foreign does the same.
