Error after updating packages


I got this error today after updating my packages:

The version of my GR is:

- GR 0.37.0

I’m still using Julia 0.6.3.


The current version of Plots/GR does not support 0.6. It looks like Plots or GR weren’t properly upper-bounded, as they should not update anymore after running Pkg.update(). You should simply pin GR, StatPlots and Plots to their previous versions.

EDIT: GR does actually in principle support 0.6 also in the newest versions.


Oh, now i can’t remember wich versions they were before… anyway i can get that info? I guess GR was in 0.34, but can’t really remember about StatPlots and Plots.


What versions do you have now?


Oh well, i just rolled GR back to 0.34 and it worked again. Didn’t had to change Plots and StatPlots at all.

Thanks for your help!


@jheinen Just a heads up that GR 0.34+ may need to be lower-bounded on 0.7 so it doesn’t install on 0.6 computers.

Also, the Travis tests pass and complete successfully.


Oh so the current version of GR does support 1.0? Sorry I’ll edit my response above. That’s strange :thinking:


you mean 0.6, right?


LOL I’ll just stop posting.
