Greetings, I just installed the latest Mac upgrade version of R R-2.6.1 When I attempt to update bioconductor packages, R catches a bus to crashville. I'm using the recommended approach from i.e. source("") update.packages(repos=biocinstallRepos(), ask=FALSE) Session info and error report are below. I'm not seeing this issue in R news groups yet. Anyone else having this problem?
