[Bioc-devel] update packages not working

Today the warning message again appeared, but shortly thereafter I was
prompted to update a host of BioC packages. So, I think the warning is a
bug, but not one that prevents the updates from taking place.

The warning message you posted should not prevent updates, but it is
difficult for me to tell if something else is going on.
