One other thing comes to mind, which is that given the age of your ESS installation and that you are running Emacs 25, there have been two major Emacs updates since the version of ESS you are using, both 24 and 25.

There is a reasonable chance that your ESS version, given its age, may be incompatible with some of the under the hood changes in Emacs since then, including changes to variable names, etc.

Upgrading ESS would seem prudent, even if you have to manually install it from the ESS site, if the Slack source maintainer cannot do so.
