if (!require("airway"))
BiocManager::install("airway")


This appeared to download to a temporary folder in my Mac, as opposed to the 'Library' folder. Because at this point I quit RStudio and opened a new session, the message detailing the exact location of the airway package is lost. On opening Rstudio/R again, I typed:

library(airway)


No further error message generated until I typed:

colData(airway)


"Error in h(simpleError(msg, call)) : error in evaluating the argument 'x' in selecting a method for function 'colData': object 'airway' not found"

So, I uninstalled airway from the packages pane and tried reinstalling, this time from CRAN using the 'Install' icon in the Packages pane of RStudio. This time I got the message: Warning in install.packages : package ‘airway’ is not available for this version of R A version of this package for your version of R might be available elsewhere, see the ideas at https://cran.r-project.org/doc/manuals/r-patched/R-admin.html#Installing-packages

What should I do to load the airway package

I think it would help if you try again to install it via BiocManager::install("airway") and report the exact text output (without quitting in the middle of the process).

data(airway)` is your friend. The CRAN error comes from the fact that it is not a CRAN package, not that it is a version problem itself.
