Hello, 

I've recently upgraded my R version to 3.5.1, and I since them I'm having a lot of problems to install bioconductor packages: 

>source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
>biocLite()

Installing package into ‘\\icnas1.cc.ic.ac.uk/hrb08/R/win-library/3.5’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL 'https://bioconductor.org/packages/3.7/bioc/bin/windows/contrib/3.5/BiocInstaller_1.30.0.zip'
Content type 'application/zip' length 102191 bytes (99 KB)
downloaded 99 KB

Error in desc[1L, "Type"] : subscript out of bounds
In addition: Warning message:
In unzip(zipname, exdir = dest) : write error in extracting from zip file

Any help?

Many thanks

The problem is likely related to the 'UNC' file path \\icnas1.cc.ic.ac.uk/hrb08/R/win-library/3.5 ; solve this by mapping this network drive to a letter, e.g., X: (google for "windows map network drive") and updating the way you start R (e.g., by right-clicking on the R desktop icon) so that it uses the letter version of the path to R.
