Your packages is failing in both release and devel of Bioconductor.  You need to fix the package.  You can see the ERROR on the build reports



If you click on the ERROR on either one of those pages for any of the operating systems it will give more information on how the package is failing.

Hi Bioconductor,
Recently I received the next email, but I used the website you sent me, version 1.7 looks fine after three days when I submitted :
 And I can find my package on the following website.


but, I checked bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/epihet/ again today, why it told me build is wrong. I am confused.

    Hi epihet maintainer,

    According to the Multiple platform build/check report for BioC 3.12,
    the epihet package has the following problem(s):

      o ERROR for 'R CMD build' on malbec1. See the details here:

    Please take the time to address this by committing and pushing
    changes to your package at git.bioconductor.org


      * This was the status of your package at the time this email was sent to you.
        Given that the online report is updated daily (in normal conditions) you
        could see something different when you visit the URL(s) above, especially if
        you do so several days after you received this email.

      * It is possible that the problems reported in this report are false positives,
        either because another package (from CRAN or Bioconductor) breaks your
        package (if yours depends on it) or because of a Build System problem.
        If this is the case, then you can ignore this email.

      * Please check the report again 24h after you've committed your changes to the
        package and make sure that all the problems have gone.

      * If you have questions about this report or need help with the
        maintenance of your package, please use the Bioc-devel mailing list:
