I found that because I was using already BiocManager with Bioc 3.7 I had to use BiocManager::install(version = "3.8") in order to upgrade to Bioc 3.8.

Yes - I happen to be teaching a workshop tomorrow on Bioconductor, and the new way to upgrade to BioC took me a while to find. Previously, biocLite() would check and give a message that a newer version of Bioconductor was available for your version of R, but it doesn't like BiocManager::install() has that check in place (yet?)!

If you had transitioned to BiocManager already for version 3.7, the following message shows up

$ bioc-3.7
> library(BiocManager)
Bioconductor version 3.7 (BiocManager 1.30.3), ?BiocManager::install for help
Bioconductor version '3.7' is out-of-date; the current release version '3.8' is
  available with R version '3.5'; see https://bioconductor.org/install

I guess BiocInstaller is silent about upgrading; we'll look in to that...

Ah – now I see the message! You have to explicitly load the BiocManager package. The main install page and all the package landing pages call the install via BiocManager::install(), which as you said is silent. Probably would be good to add the warning to this as well when you get the chance. As always, thanks for all the work that you & the Bioconductor team do! Happy Halloween, Jenny
