Hi! Total noob here, can anybody help me debug this? I'm trying to install EWCE (https://bioc.ism.ac.jp/packages/3.4/bioc/html/EWCE.html) and failed on two different machines (RStudio Server Pro @ my local HPC & RStudio on my PC).

> source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
Bioconductor version 3.7 (BiocInstaller 1.30.0), ?biocLite for help
> biocLite("EWCE")

Using Bioconductor 3.7 (BiocInstaller 1.30.0), R 3.5.0 (2018-04-23).
Installing package(s) ‘EWCE’
installation path not writeable, unable to update packages: foreign, mgcv
Warning message:
package ‘EWCE’ is not available (for R version 3.5.0)

 

I've also tried:

BiocManager::install("EWCE")

 

but it gives me the same error :(

Nevermind, managed to install it directly from github this way:

install.packages("devtools")
library(devtools)
install_github("NathanSkene/EWCE")

EWCE was removed from Bioconductor with the release of version 3.7 (https://bioconductor.org/about/removed-packages/)

If you still want to use it, you can either download the source tar.gz from one of the older BioC release pages, or try the Github repository you can find via Google search - but I presume there was a reason the package was retired.

I'm the developer of EWCE. It was depreciated from bioconductor just because it's easier to keep it updated through github. I recommend doing as others have suggested here arnd using the version available through install_github("NathanSkene/EWCE"). One day I'll try and get it back up on bioconductor.
