\luadirect is a command defined by (currently) luacode.sty:

First, the exact syntax of |\directlua| has changed along version of
Lua\TeX, so this package provides a |\luadirect| command which is an
exact synonym of |\directlua| except that it doesn't have the funny,
changing parts of its syntax.\footnote{And also, it expands in two
steps instead of one. If you don't known what it means, then you
probably don't need to.}

I think the definition was previously somewhere else and probably
Manuel simply forget a \RequirePackage while rearranging the code.

(I can't test as miktex hasn't yet the updates).
