Hi BiocDevel:

I got an error when tried to install several packages from Bioconductor
(rtracklayer, SummarizedExperiments), so I removed BiocInstaller and
reinstall again now error is gone. But, I got warning which previously
happened when I failed to install rtracklayer packages. Because this
warning sometime prevent to install package from Bioconductor. Can anyone
help me what's going on?  Thanks a lot
