Hello! BioConductor beginner here (trying to use as part of an exercise in an R course I'm taking). I couldn't for the life of me get genefilter to work. For background, I'm using MacOS BigSur on an M1 machine.

I tried to install the code according to the course instructions:


And resulted in the following error message"

make: /opt/R/arm64/bin/gfortran: No such file or directory
make: *** [ttest.o] Error 1
ERROR: compilation failed for package ‘genefilter’
* removing ‘/Users/kapicapistrano/Library/R/arm64/4.2/library/genefilter’

The downloaded source packages are in
Warning: unable to access index for repository
  cannot open URL ''
Warning message:
In install.packages(...) :
  installation of package ‘genefilter’ had non-zero exit status

Before this, I got several "Warning: unable to access index..." messages and a prompt to attempt to install from those sources. Appreciate getting some help, thanks in advance.
