I install org-mode using use-package via the orgmode.org elpa archive.

In the past month I've received Symbol’s function definition is void messages such as:

org-capture-select-template: Symbol’s function definition is void: org-mks

org-archive-subtree: Symbol’s function definition is void: org-show-all

These functions seems to be defined in org.el and org-macs.el respectively.

I've tried deleting my ~/.emacs.d/elpa folder and reinstalling everything, but still get the error.

Here's my use-package macro for org. Any advice appreciated.

  (require 'package)
  (setq package-archives '(("gnu" . "http://elpa.gnu.org/packages/")
               ("melpa" . "http://melpa.org/packages/")
               ("org" . "https://orgmode.org/elpa/")))
  (setq package-enable-at-startup nil)
