Someone else at the same domain sent this earlier this week, so please do check before posting. See

Problems in packages should be reported to the maintainer. In this case my guess is that the package needs updating as origin() is an unexported function from package chron. Using another package with an unrelated function origin() just causes errors, and is what namespaces are designed to avoid.

Note that packages which are Windows-only (and in this case depend on a non-CRAN package) do not get tested in the daily testing.
