Hi all,

I am trying to publish on CRAN a package that uses the INLA::inla function
from the INLA package. The INLA package is outside CRAN. After package
submission, CRAN gives me an error that seems to be related to the use of
this INLA::inla function on Debian R. The error says that the INLA package
is not available. Below the result of the CRAN check.

Can I do anything about it? Can I still publish my package on CRAN?

package AGPRIS_1.0.tar.gz does not pass the incoming checks automatically,
please see the following pre-tests:
