I have R version 3.6.1 on Linux and this is pretty immoveable due to dependencies of other packages. I want to install DESeq2.
I run this using BiocManager::install and it fails to install.
The problem is a dependency, Hmisc, and the reason Hmisc fails is because of a dependency, foreign, and the reason foreign fails is because it equires R>4.0.0
I can't really upgrade my R version, and in any case, moving to R 4.0 has been very difficult for all sorts of reasons.
So how can I find a version of DESeq2 that will work with R 3.6.1 and why does BiocManager::install fail on these dependencies?
