I recently tried installing the minfi package on a fresh installation of R 3.5.0 on Unix. It failed prompting the following error:
ERROR: dependencies 'rngtools', 'pkgmaker' are not available for package 'doRNG'
Aparently, in the package dependency tail it could not find the ‘rngtools’, ‘pkgmaker’ packages. These have been moved to the CRAN archive (I guess because they are no longer officially supported?). How do I install 'minfi' and other packages that rely on them?
I guess one way would be to manually install the missing packages from the CRAN archive, but I guess there is a better solution.
