Hi, I am using the Bioconductor package BindingSiteFinder. However I want to use the latest version on BindingSiteFinder. I updated BiocManager to version 3.14 and also updated all packages (apart from Matrix for some reason). Still der BindingSiteFinder version is [Package BindingSiteFinder version 1.0.0 Index], while on the webpage it says the version that goes with Bioconductor 3.14 should be 1.4.0 (https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/BindingSiteFinder.html). How can I update the package to version 1.4.0?

See my code and session info below.

The current version of Bioconductor is 3.16. You can see this at the top of the BindingSiteFinder page you linked to (https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/BindingSiteFinder.html). Near the top of the page navigation breadcrumbs read: Home >> Bioconductor 3.16 >> Software Packages >> BindingSiteFinder and then slightly lower down it has "Bioconductor version: Release (3.16)".

BindingSiteFinder version 1.0.0 is appropriate for Bioconductor 3.14 (https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/3.14/bioc/html/BindingSiteFinder.html), which is why you're ending up with that version.

If you run BiocManager::install(version = "3.16") it will hopefully update all your packages. You might need to update to R version 4.2 in order for this to work, as Bioconductor releases are tied to specific R versions.
