Dear BioC,

Every time I install a package with the biocLite() function, once the package has been installed, it asks me if I want to update all, some or none of the packages already installed.

I would appreciate if someone tells me a way to prevent that function from  asking it every time I use it.

Thanks a lot

Any reason why you don't accept the updates? It is highly recommended that you accept them (by choosing the "all" option). That way you'll kill 2 birds with the same stone: biocLite() won't ask you again and you will keep your installation up to date.
