Hi, I'm having a lot of problems trying to install the package "" in R. I have previously installed a lot of packages and this is the only one giving me problems. I used this to install it (which works perfectly fine with other packages):

if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))


And I get this error:

Bioconductor version 3.10 (BiocManager 1.30.10), R 3.6.1 (2019-07-05)

Any help will be highly appreciated Thanks

Looks like you are trying to install a package to a network directory. The fix is to map that network dir to a 'local' drive and then install.
