Installing Maaslin2 from Bioconductor

Dear Maaslin2 developpers and users,

I am experiencing some difficulties installing Maaslin2 using Bioconductor. Basically I got the following error :

Warning message:
package ‘Maaslin2’ is not available (for R version 3.6.1) 

This is the output :

I actually had to update BiocManager::install(version = “3.10”)


Thanks for your post. Yes, to install MaAsLin2 via Bioconductor the version does need to be v3.10 since we did not submit the tool until after the release of v3.10. We are sorry for any confusion! Let us know if you come across any issues while running the tool.

Again, thanks for the feedback!
