8schools error Boost not found


I am getting started with RStan and I get the following error while running the basic example 8schools.stan:

Error in stan_model(file, model_name = model_name, model_code = model_code, :
Boost not found; call install.packages(‘BH’)

BH (1.65) is installed and loaded. However I came across this other post and wonder if it could be related.

rstan compilation error under Boost 1.64 #441

Any help will be greatly appreciated,

Here is my session info:

Never mind, an additionnal R relaunch did the trick. Sorry for the bother…
