I just updated my R version from 4.0.2 to 4.1.1. I could install packages by BiocManager::install() while I was using R 4.0.2. However, I cannot install packages by BiocManager::install() while I am using R 4.1.1. I am able to install packages by using install.packages, but BiocManager::install() does not work in my computer for R 4.1.1. Please see the error message below.

Thank you very much in advance! Kindest regards, Julie

As a temporary fix you can use chooseBioCmirror(local.only = TRUE) to select a Bioconductor mirror to install from.

chooseBioCmirror(local.only = TRUE)  
install.packages("BiocManager")
BiocManager::install("limma")

This gives the same error:

'getOption("repos")' replaces Bioconductor standard repositories, see '?repositories' for details

replacement repositories: CRAN: https://cran.rstudio.com/

Bioconductor version 3.13 (BiocManager 1.30.16), R 4.1.1 (2021-08-10) Installing package(s) 'BiocVersion', 'limma'

The server has been restored. Could you please try again now that the repositories should be accessible? If not, also do not see an ERROR message just a message that indicates a repository is being replaced? After installing BiocManager, what does BiocManager::valid() produce?

I am having the exact same problem:

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

replacement repositories:
    CRAN: https://cloud.r-project.org

Bioconductor version 3.13 (BiocManager 1.30.16), R 4.1.1 (2021-08-10)
Installing package(s) 'BiocVersion', 'edgeR'
also installing the dependencies ‘limma’, ‘locfit’

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
