At the risk of only being mildly (if at all) helpful, I was able
to reproduce your warnings on Rhub, which has the same compiler,

    rhub::check('cubature_2.0.4.1.tar.gz', platform='windows-x86_64-release')

Absent feedback from CRAN you could try tweaking your code so that
it does not produce those warnings while no changing behavior.
Obviously, iterating with rhub is not the easiest way to do this,
but might be easier than trying to get GCC 8.3.

For reference, you might be hitting:


Maybe you knew that already but it might be useful for others to be
aware there is an actual bug that at least is in the general area
that affects GCC 8.2-8.3.

I submitted a minor update of cubature (suggesting rmarkdown for 
vignettes) and received a message that the package generated warnings. 
However, the warnings were noted to be untrustworthy (see email below). 
I noted this in the submission comments as well as the reply to the 
auto-check email.

It appears that I am unable to get beyond the auto-check service. Any

Dear CRAN,

As explained in my submission comment, the warning is noted to be flaky 
in the message below.

Thank you.

I think -Warray-bounds is known to be flaky in earlier compilers.  I do 
not see this on macOS with Apple Clang 11.5 (latest for High Sierra) or 
12.4 (current) and nor does Tomas for GCC 10 on Windows.
