I am trying to install the pasilla package by following the bioconductor website instructions :

if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
BiocManager::install("pasilla", version = "3.8")

But I have the following answer :

Installing package into ‘/home/myname/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.4’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘BiocManager’ is not available (for R version 3.4.4)

How can I install the bioManager package and so the pasilla package ?

Thank a lot

You can do either

  1. Install the current version of R (R-3.5.2), then use install.packages to install BiocManager, and then the pasilla package (recommended)
  2. Stick with your current version of R, install BiocInstaller by doing source("") and then biocLite("pasilla"). This isn't really recommended, as we don't support old versions of R/Bioconductor, so I would do #1 if at all possible.
