I am currently trying to work with goslim on a set of differentially expressed genes of which I have some ontologies. 

I tried to use commands similar to those on this link

fl <- system.file("extdata", "goslim_plant.obo", package="GSEABase")
slim <- getOBOCollection(fl)

#[1] "GO:0006354" "GO:0003677" "GO:0016570" "GO:0005515" "GO:0003702" "GO:0005815"


However, I obtain the following error when running GOCollection:

Error: getAnnMap: package GO not available


When I try to install the missing package, this is what I obtain:

Using Bioconductor 3.5 (BiocInstaller 1.26.1), R 3.4.1 (2017-06-30).
Installing package(s) ‘GO’
installation path not writeable, unable to update packages: boot, Matrix, mgcv
Warning message:
package ‘GO’ is not available (for R version 3.4.1) 


It seems my R installation is up to date. Any idea what is going on? Is there any other library I should use here? 

This is the result of my sessionInfo() command:

The missing package is GO.db, so biocLIte("GO.db").

Thanks! It's working now that I've done that.
