I removed limma from my packages and am trying to install in again. These are the warning I am getting when trying to install again:

package ‘limma’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

Warning: cannot remove prior installation of package ‘limma’

Warning: restored ‘limma’

In addition, when I do library(limma), I get:

Error in library(limma) : there is no package called ‘limma’

I am using Biocmanager to install it, and would aprreciate any help in this regard, thank you!

Hi mropri,

It would be helpful if you could provide the command you used for the installation.

You can try to use the "force" option:

BiocManager::install(pkgs = "limma", force = TRUE)

Alternatively,you can manually uninstall limma, you can find the directories where your R packages are installed using:


Delete the folder corresponding to the limma package, open R and try to install limma again.
