This is not your fault, you were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time :)
Bioconductor 3.8 was released on October 31., so the importer, and
most probably all packages not having the substitues from
bioconductor are off. (It seems the release tarballs from 3.7 were
removed.) There is a comment in the importer that all bioconductor
packages should be updated together. We should ask Ricardo later how
to proceed regarding this.
