It seems you have two versions of HTTP installed. I'm not really sure
about HTTP-3.x.x.x's API, but I'd wage a guess that it doesn't define
`getRequest`. When importing in ghci, your installation probably picks
the older one instead of the new version.

Try hiding the old package and see if it fixes your problem:

> ghc-pkg hide HTTP-3001.1.13

You can unhide it using `ghc-pkg unhide HTTP-3001.1.13`.
