Dear All, I have a problem downloading the human genome (TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg38.knownGene). Please see below the code I used and the warning message and let me know how to solve it. Thanks a lot

I have used the following code and my Bioconductor version is 3.6

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
BiocInstaller::biocVersion()
## try http:// if https:// URLs are not supported
source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("DESeq2")
## try http:// if https:// URLs are not supported
source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg38.knownGene")


But I receive the following warning message:

The downloaded source packages are in
Warning messages:

You are using a very outdated version of R and Bioconductor. We don't support old versions, particularly versions that are years out of date. Please upgrade to R-4.0.0 and BioC3.11.

Also, it is usually less problematic to use library paths that don't have spaces in them, so you don't have to rely on the formation of a Windows short path to remove the spaces.

AND, if you are telling R that it's OK to install source packages, you have to have RTools installed as well.

Err. I meant to say if you are telling R to install source packages and those packages have C or C++ or Fortran code that needs to be compiled, which isn't true in this case, but it's still worth it to have the RTools installed.
