I am trying to install R package 'mygene' and it is giving me the following error. I am relatively new to R, so any help is appreciated!

BiocManager::install("mygene", version = "3.10")


Bioconductor version 3.10 (BiocManager 1.30.4), R 3.6.0 (2019-04-26)
Installing package(s) 'mygene'

Error in install.packages(pkgs = doing, lib = lib, repos = repos, ...) : 
  This version of R is not set up to install source packages

If it was installed from an RPM, you may need the R-devel RPM

Why are you trying to install the development version of the package? - currently (July 6, 2019), we are on Bioconductor v3.9. Therefore, Bioconductor v3.10 refers to the current development branch of the packages. Let's first clear that up.

Ok, here is what I got-

> BiocManager::install("mygene", version = "3.9")
Error: To use Bioconductor version '3.9', first downgrade 26 packages with
"BiocManager::install(version = '3.9')"

Downgrade 25 packages to Bioconductor version '3.9'? [y/n]:

Did you install the version of R that you are currently using? - are you using your own laptop / desktop computer?

What if you restart everything and just do BiocManager::install("mygene")?

Also, what is the output of this?

R.home("bin")

?
