Hello! I am doing undergraduate bioinformatics research this summer, and as I am new to R, I have had trouble trying to access some data.

I am trying to download from GSE62944 (according to here https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/devel/data/experiment/vignettes/GSE62944/inst/doc/GSE62944.html), but I am running into errors when I try to use ExperimentHub. I do not have a problem when I run library (ExperimentHub), but when I try to run eh = ExperimentHub(), I get the following problem:

updating metadata: retrieving 1 resource
Error: database is corrupt; remove it and try again
database: ‘C:/Users/chris/Documents/AppData/.ExperimentHub/experimenthub.sqlite3’
reason: missing tables
cache path: ‘C:/Users/chris/Documents/AppData/.ExperimentHub/experimenthub.sqlite3’
reason: Couldn't connect to server 

My output for sessionInfo() is

R version 3.3.1 (2016-06-21)

attached base packages:

other attached packages:

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
Error in x[["Version"]] : subscript out of bounds
In FUN(X[[i]], ...) :

I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hi,

The current version of ExperimentHub is 0.101.10 - I also see a strange error for S4Vectors. I would recommend first updating all packages with biocLite().

As an fyi, you can always check the most current package versions on the build report

http://www.bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/

If you still see the 'corrupt' error after updating remove the .ExperimentHub/ directory then try ExperimentHub() again.

I've updated all the packages as well as removed the ExperimentHub/ directory, but they did not fix the problem. I have tried reinstalling R and my computer also.
