Hi,

I'm working with microarray data (Affymetrix) and I'm trying to use this package hgu133plus2db to convert the AffyIDs into Symbols. Unfortunately, when I install it through biocLite it appears a warning message:

> biocLite("hgu133plus2db")
BioC_mirror: https://bioconductor.org
Using Bioconductor 3.7 (BiocInstaller 1.30.0), R 3.5.1 (2018-07-02).
Installing package(s) ‘hgu133plus2db’
Warning message:
package ‘hgu133plus2db’ is not available (for R version 3.5.1)


How do I manage this error?

Any answer will be appreciated. I'm new at this...!

We are on Bioconductor 3.9 now, so you should upgrade to the current version of R and Bioconductor. There is no reason to be out of date by a year!

Once you have done that, please do note that the package you are looking for is hgu133plus2.db, not hgu133plus2db.
