 From the Linux command line:

   git clone https://github.com/BaderLab/netDx

   * installing to library ‘/home/hpages/R/R-3.6.r76454/library’
   Error: error reading file '/home/hpages/sandbox/netDx/DESCRIPTION'

   R CMD build netDx
   * checking for file ‘netDx/DESCRIPTION’ ...Error : file 
'/home/hpages/sandbox/netDx/DESCRIPTION' is not in valid DCF format
    EXISTS but not correct format

 From R:

   # Error in read.dcf(path) :
   #   Line starting 'The method converts  ...' is malformed!

How about making sure that your package is valid before submitting?
