Hi all,

after updating R to 3.4.0 I have a problem reinstalling 1 particular Bioconductor package: clusterProfiler. Do you have any suggestions on what I might do except to download the package .tgz and install manually (which I've already done)?

Thank you.

Here is an error I get:

Can you try again in a new R session? R's install.packages() saves a cache of available packages, and the cache is out-of-date (accessing version 3.4.0 of clusterProfiler, when 3.4.1 is available).

I had a similar problem and a new session couldn't solve it. 

So, just in case someone needs it, I solved the problem by defining the specific repository:

biocLite("clusterProfiler", siteRepos = "")

It does work in a new R session. That will be useful the next time I have this problem. Thank you.
