Dear all, I am aiming to install 2 recent BioC packages, ie. GeneVisR and maftools on my Linux ubuntu machine, that runs : Bioconductor 3.2 (BiocInstaller 1.20.3), R 3.3.2 (2016-10-31).

The message I am getting is : 

"package ‘maftools’ is not available (for R version 3.3.2"

or 

"package ‘GeneVisR’ is not available (for R version 3.3.2)" 

Please, could you advise on how to install these packages ? if I need BioC 3.4, how shall I update from BioC 3.2. to 3.4 ?

The error message I am getting is :

>  biocLite("BiocUpgrade")
Error: Bioconductor version 3.2 cannot be upgraded with R version 3.3.2

You have a complete mismatch between your Bioconductor and R versions. BioC 3.2 was intended for R-3.2.x

You should restart R, then do

source("https://www.bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite()

Which should get you the correct version of BiocInstaller, which will then install the correct version of packages.

Also, do note that it's GenVisR, not GeneVisR.
