Dear Bioconductor Support,
i recently tried to upgrade my R version to the newest R version 3.2 in one of my computers in order to check how it works:
My current info is : sessionInfo()
R version 3.1.1 (2014-07-10)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
 LC_COLLATE=Greek_Greece.1253 LC_CTYPE=Greek_Greece.1253 LC_MONETARY=Greek_Greece.1253
 LC_NUMERIC=C LC_TIME=Greek_Greece.1253
attached base packages:
 tools stats graphics grDevices utils datasets methods base
other attached packages:
I followed the code:
and although R was installed, with some questions ask about copying the old packages in the new version and upgrade them, finally there was the following error:
Installing the newest version of R,
please wait for the installer file to be download and executed.
Be sure to click 'next' as needed...

The file was downloaded succesfully into:

We can not seem to find the location if the new R you have installed.
The rest of the updating process is aborted, please take care to copy
your packages to the new R installation.
In install.R(to_checkMD5sums = to_checkMD5sums, keep_install_file = keep_install_file, :
There was some problem with installing R. Some files are not what they should be (e.g: check MD5 sums did not pass all the tests).
You can try installing R again (either manually or through install.R()),
and if the problem persists you can file a bug report by running: bug.report(package = 'installr')
I also tried through istall.R but the same error remains. Any directions or help ?
