In installing and updating  bioconductor packages the dependency GO.db fails on widows on what looks like a parsing error brought about by a space in the path on E: drive.  I don't know if this is because the linux equivalent is "/e/program files/..." to the Windows "E:\progem Files\..."

But, whether it is something else, but I'd be grateful for a workaround or better yet a fix.

Here's the console output ...
