I had the same issue today, here's the note I made on our work Teams
Not too sure where to deposit this little piece of information. Just a
little 'hiccup' in the latest transition of R versions (3.5 -> 3.6) and
Bioconductor. The newest stable version of Bioconductor (3.9) depends on R
3.6, while 3.8 on R 3.5.
A version or two ago Bioconductor changed there package management function
from BiocInstaller to BiocManager, I assume that the older package is
nearly fully depreciated. .The issue I had was that using the
BiocManager::install(update=T) command it was complaining about R version
3.6 and saying that Bioconductor 3.8 was the most recent. I removed any
traces of both package managers and reinstalled the most updated recommend
tool. It still reported version 3.8 as up to date. Long story short, I went
digging and found a 'hang over' package called BiocVersion which I removed
and problem solved, version 3.9 available, do you want to upgrade? Yes
So for me the removal of the package BiocVersion solved the issue on 3
P.s. This was using the latest CRAN version of BiocManager (1.30.4).
