[Bioc-devel] right version "masked" by wrong version - not sure what "masked means"

I am trying to build IGV (a new submission) on windows (tokay2) after linux and macOS build clean.

IGV needs its base class package, BrowserViz, at version >= 2.0, whose build report is OK for install, build, and build bin.   BrowserViz 2.0.11 fails check, probably because now web browser is available on the build machines.

The IGV build on windows reports an error I have not seen before.  Can anyone help?  What does “masked” mean in this context - not of a function, method or variable, but apparently of the entire package?
