Dear All,

I installed R version 3.2.2 on our server, and tried to install Bioconductor version 3.2. However, no matter what I do, I always got the following error: 

> source("")
Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.5), ?biocLite for help
BiocInstaller version 3.0 is too old for R version 3.2.2;
  remove.packages("BiocInstaller") then
A new version of Bioconductor is available after installing the most recent
  version of R; see
​> biocLite("BiocUpgrade")
Error: Bioconductor version 3.0 cannot be upgraded with R version 3.1.0

As you can see, my R version is clearly 3.2.2. However, when I run biocLite("BiocUpgrade"), it suggested my R version is  3.1.0. So, how can I upgrade my Bioconductor to version 3.2?  I would greatly appreciate all your kind help!  Jeff

There is one or more copies of an old version of the BiocInstaller package in your .libPaths(). Follow the advice in the promote and remove it / them (repeatedly say remove.packages("BiocInstaller") until R says that there is no package to remove). Restart R, verify that there is no BiocInstaller package, and run the command source("").
