I'm trying to install a package on FlowJo (FlowClean), and as far as I understand it, I need to install the packages on R. To fetch the packages on R, however, I need to have BiocInstaller. However, when I copy and paste the given script for R, it brings up the following:
> source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") Installing package into ‘\\cfsk16.campus.gla.ac.uk/SSD_Home_Data_V/2299639P/My Documents/R/win-library/3.5’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified) Warning: unable to access index for repository https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/src/contrib: cannot open URL 'https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/src/contrib/PACKAGES' Warning: unable to access index for repository https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/bin/windows/contrib/3.5: cannot open URL 'https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/bin/windows/contrib/3.5/PACKAGES' 'biocLite.R' failed to install 'BiocInstaller', use 'install.packages("BiocInstaller", repos="https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc")' or 'install.packages("BiocInstaller", repos="http://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc")' Warning message: package ‘BiocInstaller’ is not available (for R version 3.5.0)
Do I need to install an older version of R for this to work? If so, how do I do that, as I can't seem to find older version on R's website.
