As the tag line on each message says:

Please provide an example. It will also help to include the output of

sessionInfo()

so we can determine exactly which version of R and the Matrix package you are using on what platform. Also try

> find("t")
[1] "package:Matrix" "package:base"

to see which version of "t" is the first on the search path.

It seems to still be working for me, but "outside the package".

Loading required package: lattice

Attaching package: 'Matrix'

The following object(s) are masked from 'package:base':
