[Bioc-devel] Can anyone reproduce this? Possible bug or typo in BiocManager:::.version_map() or upstream

I get

 > BiocManager::install()
Error: Bioconductor version '3.13' requires R version '4.1'; R version is too new; see

and this appears to be because of the last line in

> BiocManager:::.version_map()
   Bioc    R  BiocStatus RSPM MRAN
…(29 lines omitted)….
30 3.10  3.6 out-of-date <NA> <NA>
31 3.11  4.0 out-of-date <NA> <NA>
32 3.12  4.0     release <NA> <NA>
33 3.13  4.1       devel <NA> <NA>
34 3.13  4.2      future <NA> <NA>

Shouldn’t it say “3.14” in the second element of the last line?

and I seem to have the most recent version of BiocManager as of today’s https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/BiocManager/index.html 


Btw the result of

> BiocManager:::.get_R_version()
[1] ‘4.2.0’

is probably technically not correct, as it’s r-devel.

Kind regards
