Hi Bioc-devel,

I think that there's a potential issue with either GenomicFeatures,
TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene or an upstream package.

On a fresh R 4.0 Windows installation with BioC 3.11, I get the
following error message when installing
TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene as shown at

>From looking at the bioc-devel landing pages for both GenomicFeatures
and TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene, I see that tibble is not listed
as a dependency for either package.
