Changed since when? This has been the behaviour for years with the error quoted.

It is an offending _package_, and it tells you which one in

Package 'metaGSEA' seems not to be installed properly. It also tells you that 'library' is involved, so it looks like it is a package load and not a namespace load.

You have not told us if ¡metaGSEA¢ is the package under test or a dependent. Given that in earlier 'check' output which you excised the loading of the package under test was checked, the latter looks more plausible.

Maybe not, but unusual. It is a lot harder to get a package installed non-functionally these days, but it can happen if it were installed with a different version or architecture, or if binary packages are involved.
