Ok everyone, I'm new to this so please be nice. I am trying to update Bioconductor in my R. I have R 3.3.0. I followed the troubleshooting instructions to load with R --vanilla and remove.packages (biocInstaller) etc. and it still doesn't work. And I have looked at other posts where other people have struggled and I still can't seem to figure it out.
R version 3.3.0 (2016-05-03) -- "Supposedly Educational"
Copyright (C) 2016 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
I have done the following:
R -- vanilla
Removing package from ‘C:/Users/Gina D/Documents/R/win-library/3.3’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Error in remove.packages : there is no package called ‘BiocInstaller’
Bioconductor version 3.0 (BiocInstaller 1.16.5), ?biocLite. for help
BiocInstaller version 3.0 is too old for R version 3.3.0;
A new version of Bioconductor is available after
installing the most recent version of R; see
I have tried this in several R sessions. Also, I run biocValid() and the same packages (179 of them) are out of date every time, so it's not saving the updated ones after running biocLite() ?
Please any advice at what I am doing wrong would be great.
