Dear BioConductor team,

I am having problems installing the package "S4Vectors" using the latest versions of R and BioC (see below). Judging from the posts here, this seems to be a recurrent problem. Thanks for any help, Best,

Achim

Earlier in your session, when you first ran source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") or perhaps library(BiocInstaller), did you see a message

BiocInstaller version 3.0 is too old for R version 3.2.1;
  remove.packages("BiocInstaller") then
  source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R") 

Try following these instructions in a new R session. If remove.packages() fails with some kind of error message, try and trouble shoot why that is. If the problem remains. Start a fresh R session and paste the entire output from the following commands

remove.pacakges("BiocInstaller")
source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
BiocInstaller::biocVersion()
.libPaths()
​sessionInfo()
