Hi Alper,

As you can see here


and here


CRAN doesn't provide OS X binaries of V8 and ggraph for r-devel yet so 
our build system is unable to install these packages. Whether this is 
going to be fixed or not is not in our hands but in the hands of the 
CRAN folks. So we just need to wait and hope that these binaries will 
become available before the next R and BioC release (in Spring). This 
situation is not new and in the past these binaries have become 
available a few weeks before a new R release.

Note that debrowser is not the only Bioconductor package to be affected 
by the lack of OS X binaries for r-devel on CRAN: dozens of Bioconductor 
packages are currently affected. For example the clusterProfiler and 
enrichplot packages (which your package debrowser depends on) are 
themselves affected:



The following recent posts to this list were also about packages 
affected in that way:
