Hello, I am trying to install package destiny on R_4.1.0 via Bioamanager 3.13, however, It warned me that no package destiny available.

> BiocManager::install('destiny')
'getOption("repos")' replaces Bioconductor standard repositories, see '?repositories' for details

replacement repositories:

Bioconductor version 3.13 (BiocManager 1.30.16), R 4.1.0 (2021-05-18)
Installing package(s) 'destiny'
Warning message:
In .inet_warning(msg) :
  package ‘destiny’ is not available for Bioconductor version '3.13'

A version of this package for your version of R might be available elsewhere,
see the ideas at

I checked the page for destiny, and it seems that BiocManager 3.13 supports the package. However, using function BiocManager::available, the package is out of reach.

Destiny has yet to build properly since the Bioconductor 3.13 release and therefore is not yet available.

I suggest you reach out to the Destiny maintainers as we have tried and they have yet to fix the package to make it available.

Alternative solutions in the meantime would be to download the source code available

git clone

And trying to install manually. note that if it is failing on our build system there may be issues that may prevent certain functionality of the package from functioning properly
