Hi,

I would like to install edgeR version 3.16.5. I am using following code to install, but getting a warning message.

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("edgeRv3.16.5")

Warning message:
package ‘edgeRv3.16.5’ is not available (for R version 3.3.3)

Thanks

Why do you think that would work? Is there something in the help page that made you think you could do that?

If you have R-3.3.3 installed, you should by default get that version of edgeR without having to specify the version (which you can't do anyway).

Note that for Bioconductor R-3.3.1 through R-3.3.3 will give you the same set of packages.
