I'm using R version 3.1.3 (smooth sidewalk) in Mac OSX Yosemite. When I enter the command:

    source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")

I get the following error:

Error in get(".BioC_version_associated_with_R_version", envir = asNamespace("tools"),  : 

  unused arguments (".BioC_version_associated_with_R_version", envir = asNamespace("tools"), inherits = FALSE)

I was unable to find anything by searching the forums or reading the installation page. Does anyone know what is causing this error?

Thanks for any help.

I wonder if you have another package loaded that is masking base::get(). Try starting R with:

R --vanilla

And then sourcing biocLite.R; does that work?
