Package assoc is obsolete!

Save abbrevs in ~/.emacs.d/abbrev_defs? (y or n) Package assoc is obsolete!

Core issue seems to be: "Package assoc is obsolete!"

   Simply removing (require 'assoc) from yasnippet.el fixes the issue
   for me and doesn't seem to have any negative effects so far.

I removed visual-basic-mode and now the error is no longer there.
