BiocManager Error: invalid version specification ‘c(3, 9)’

I’m not sure why this error has popped up recently.
It’s hard to debug this without being able to check the environment.

Any ideas and/or suggestions?

I’m also seeing this error in many builds. It’s always on the devel branch—I assume it’s a new issue with R 3.5.2.

Installing R packages: devtools
0.37s$ Rscript -e 'install.packages(c("devtools"));if (!all(c("devtools") %in% installed.packages())) { q(status = 1, save = "no")}'
Error: invalid version specification ‘c(3, 9)'

Here’s a few of my failing builds:

Update: This seems to be due to an R-devel regression introduced at some point causing
versions to be reported as an integer vector rather than character.

My builds on bioc-devel are fixed.

For me, it seems to work now for linux: devel. I think the guys have fixed this issue.
