“r: bioc-devel” is broken: "Bioconductor version '3.11' requires R version '4.0'"

As seen in this build, BiocManager::install(version = "devel", ask = FALSE) currently fails

This was working for me over the past year but now I’m seeing what appears to be the same problem (see this job) just with slightly newer versions of both R and Bioconductor. Did version changes trigger the same problem again, possibly?

Same with this build.

Error: Bioconductor version '3.13' requires R version '4.1'; see
  https://bioconductor.org/install
Execution halted

I tried deleting the cache but that didn’t help.

@jeroen @jimhester Just wanted to report that I encountered what seems to be the same problem here.

Error: Bioconductor version '3.13' requires R version '4.1'; see
https://bioconductor.org/install
Execution halted

Any help would be very much appreciated

I’m getting the same error in my builds (here). Were you able to work it out?

No, at least, not me. With the pricing changes for open source projects after Idea’s acquisition of Travis last year, my “fix” right now is migrating to other systems like CircleCI or maybe Github Actions. (This page has a good overview of all that: Travis CI's new pricing plan threw a wrench in my open source works | Jeff Geerling) I haven’t attempted to move any of my R projects yet, though.
