I'm trying to install the annotation package 'FDb.InfiniumMethylation.hg19' v2.2.0. I used the following code and an error is produced:


Using Bioconductor 3.7 (BiocInstaller 1.30.0), R 3.5.0 (2018-04-23).

However, I do have installed (v3.6.0), as you can see in the sessionInfo() command:

Would anyone have any idea why this may be happening? I set the .libPaths() to where my packages are installed...

Thanks in advance.

If you set the `.libPaths()` is it possible that the org package got installed in a different path before you set it? Could you try reinstalling the after you set the .libPaths() to make sure it is in the same location.
