Default argument "dispersion" is missing, with no default


I am trying to perform DEG analysis on two treatment groups using edgeR. I originally planned to keep the analysis similar to what was used for another purpose previously. To prepare the data, I used the following functions/code:

    y <- DGEList(counts=countTable, group=listGroups)
    keep <- rowSums(cpm(y)>1) >= 2*nRep #Filtering rows
    y <- y[keep, keep.lib.sizes=FALSE] #Filtering rows
    y <- cpm(y, TRUE, TRUE) # Option 2 (edgeR)
    y <- betweenLaneNormalization(y, which="full", round=FALSE)
This seems to work fine, and leads to an object y with the following structure:

> head(y)
                                N.1      N.2      N.3      P.1      P.2      P.3

I planned on running the next sequence of edgeR functions as follows:

    y = estimateCommonDisp(y)
    y = estimateTagwiseDisp(y)
    de = exactTest(y, pair=c(group1,group2))
    tt = topTags(de, n=nrow(y))
    nc = cpm(y, normalized.lib.sizes=TRUE)
However, I receive an error upon running estimateTagwiseDisp() as follows:

Error in aveLogCPM.default(y, lib.size = lib.size, dispersion = dispersion) : 
  argument "dispersion" is missing, with no default
I am not too confident in what I have here. Everything before estimateCommonDisp() was intended to be consistent with previous work done on this data. However, I am concerned about what we may be missing here.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
