The caret function was introduced in R 3.3.0.  You need to update R to 
be at least as new as that.

You might also let the maintainer of caret know about this; they should 
have "Depends:  R (>= 3.3.0)" or something similar to prevent this kind 
of error.  (But I don't see "sigma" being used in the current source, so 
this may have been addressed already, or the error message may be 
tricking me into looking in the wrong place.)
