Hi everyone,
I am running a PLS regression and try to perform cross validation (k-fold) with matlab data.
load spectra
X = NIR;
y = octane;
[XL,yl,XS,YS,beta,PCTVAR,MSE] = plsregress(X,y,10,'CV',10);
Unfortunately, this error appear:
Could you explain to me how to solve it please?
Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you Adam for your kind answer. I've listed crossval function and and indeed, the main function of matlab is hidden by one of a toolbox:
>> which crossval -all
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017a\toolbox\pls_toolbox_862\crossval.m
C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017a\toolbox\stats\stats\crossval.m % Shadowed
How can I fix it?
Thanks again,

Based on the results of
which crossval -all
a function with the same name from a 3rd party toolbox (pls toolbox) is shadowing Matlab's crossval function which is called by plsregress.
If you are not using the pls toolbox, remove it from your Matlab path using
rmpath('C:\Program Files\MATLAB\R2017a\toolbox\pls_toolbox_862')
% or
rmpath([matlabroot, '\toolbox\pls_toolbox_862'])
If you are using the pls toolbox, you can use Julian's answer explained here
It grabs the function handle from Matlab's crossval function and assigns it to a variable that you can use in addition to the crossval version in pls toolbox.
