Hi, I'm new to R/Biocunductor and trying to access AnnotationHub.  I get an error message whenever I try to run the script

> ah=AnnotationHub()
updating metadata: retrieving 1 resource
Error: database is corrupt; remove it and try again
  database: ‘/Users/ian//.AnnotationHub/annotationhub.sqlite3’
  reason: missing tables
In addition: Warning message:
download failed
  hub path: ‘’
  cache path: ‘/Users/ian//.AnnotationHub/annotationhub.sqlite3’
  reason: there is no package called ‘curl’ 

I've searched through the previous topics and found the fixes that have been posted previously (link below), however, when I run them I receive the same error message. AnnotationHub corrupt database

Turns out it was fairly straightforward

...reason: there is no package called ‘curl’  can be fixed with: install.packages("curl")

After doing this the AnnotationHub() command worked fine.
