I just upgraded R to version 3.3.2 on a Mac OS X system. I suspect something may have gone wrong with the installation (despite a ‘successfully installed’ message) because the R.App is nowhere to be found.
Nevertheless, I can open R in ESS. The problem is I can’t install packages from there. Here is an example of the error message:

> install.packages("rjags")
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---

Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 249529 bytes (243 KB)

The downloaded binary packages are in

Loading required package: coda
Error : .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'rjags', details:
  call: dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...)
  error: unable to load shared object '/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.3/Resources/library/rjags/libs/rjags.so':

  Referenced from: /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.3/Resources/library/rjags/libs/rjags.so
  Reason: image not found
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘rjags’

Does anyone know what may be going on?

Thank you,
