I am in the process of updating everything R-related: R, RStudio, packages.

I noticed that Bioconductor will not update beyond version 3.17 unless I explicitly state the desired version (see below).
Is there a reason for this? Perhaps it is because a package I have installed is not yet compatible with Bioconductor 3.18?

I couldn't post my code due to the presence of ' for instance as it appears in R around version '3.17' ...

Bioconductor version 3.17 (BiocManager 1.30.22), R 4.3.2 (2023-10-31)

This is expected and documented on the site. To upgrade from one version to another of Bioconductor you must "force" it.
You don't show the output of BiocManager::version() after making the upgrade by answering yes to Upgrade 71 packages to Bioconductor version 3.18? [y/n]: y, but it should be 3.18
