Dear T.Wang.

First of all, as a general rule, please include the sessionInfo() output
and command that caused the error to facilitate useful replies. Here I will
assume that you are using the devel branch of BioC on the latest R/BioC
setup available.

As far as I know, your problem is still a consequence of the recent
release, affecting all packages dependencies which have not passed a single
R CMD check on the new devel branch (the issue has been reported on this
mailing list for a few packages already; e.g. Biobase, now resolved). the
situation should resolve after all relevant packages pass at least one
build cycle without error:

   - For the lumi package, you can see the R CMD check failing in all
   platforms build report: http://bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-
   - Note that this is also the case for the release branch
   - As a result, the package was not released yet on the devel branch of
   the repository, and the landing page of the lumi package is not available
   yet either (click the lumi link in the build report above, which will take
   you to http://bioconductor.org/packages/3.5/bioc/html/lumi.html).
   - Another artifact of this situation is that the landing page of the
   release branch still claims to be the devel branch

Solution (as far as I know):

   - Simply wait that the package (and its dependencies) passes R CMD check
   on all platforms, which will then trigger its release on the BioC
   - In other circumstances, I would have suggested to install the lumi
   package from the release branch in the meantime, but given the build errors
   there as well, you might have to download older sources of the package, and
   install them using "install.packages(..., repos = NULL)" rather than

Last but not least, I will also point out that a quick check of the
Bioconductor Git Mirror suggests that the latest BioC release where the
lumi package code was updated is release-3.1 (
https://github.com/Bioconductor-mirror/lumi/tree/release-3.1). Maybe some
code updates are overdue now for package to build succesfully.

Kind regads,
