Arguments

pkgs

A character() vector of package names for checking, or a matrix as returned by installed.packages.

lib.loc

priority

character(1) Check validity of all, "base", or "recommended" packages; see installed.packages().

type

character(1) The type of available package (e.g., binary, source) to check validity against; see available.packages().

filters

character(1) Filter available packages to check validity against; see available.packages().

...

Additional arguments, passed to BiocManager::install() when fix=TRUE.

site_repository

character(1). See ?install.

x

A 'biocValid' object returned by 'BiocManager::valid()'.

Packages are reported as 'out-of-date' if a more recent version
is available at the repositories specified by
`BiocManager::repositories()`.  Usually, `BiocManager::install()` is
sufficient to update packages to their most recent version.

Packages are reported as 'too new' if the installed version is
more recent than the most recent available in the
`BiocManager::repositories()`. It is possible to down-grade by
re-installing a too new package "PkgA" with
`BiocManger::install("PkgA")`. It is important for the user to
understand how their installation became too new, and to avoid
this in the future.

Value

biocValid list object with elements too_new and out_of_date containing data.frames with packages and their installed locations that are too new or out-of-date for the current version of Bioconductor.

'print()' is invoked for its side effect.
