I have just upgraded bioconductor to 3.0 and installed 'annotate' (it came from: http://bioconductor.org/packages/3.0/bioc/bin/macosx/mavericks/contrib/3.1/annotate_1.44.0.tgz).
Installation concluded without error. However:
No documentation for ‘blastSequences’ in specified packages and libraries:
you could try ‘??blastSequences’
...lists the function and has the help page available. But (predictably)...
blastSequences(17702, timeout=40, as="data.frame")
Error: could not find function "blastSequences"
I see that the vignette for annotate ...
is dated two days ago.
Randomly trying a few functions gives the same behaviour.
