I have uploaded an R package to GitHub and used the GitHub Actions from
r-lib/actions to run
R CMD CHECK to assess whether my package works. It runs on builds of Windows/Mac/Linux and 6 versions of R.
On 7 out of the 8 builds, it worked fine, but on the
ubuntu-16.04 (oldrel) version it has failed in the
Run r-lib/actions/setup-r@v1 step. From my (very limited) understanding, this means that it was unable to install the
oldrel version of R on
ubuntu-16.04 build is the only build that gets the
oldrel version of R tested on it, so I think the error is specific to installing the R version and not necessarily the OS build.
The output is as follows:
Run r-lib/actions/setup-r@v1 with: r-version: oldrel rtools-version: 35 Ncpus: 1 crayon.enabled: TRUE remove-openmp-macos: true env: R_REMOTES_NO_ERRORS_FROM_WARNINGS: true RSPM: https://packagemanager.rstudio.com/cran/__linux__/xenial/latest GITHUB_PAT: ***
To me, this does not actually seem to display an error. The next step (to install pandoc with
Run r-lib/actions/setup-pandoc@v1) is not run.
A link to the action as it was most recently run is here.
Be aware, that as I’m unsure what is causing this issue I will be manually re-running this action and so if you follow this link, it may not have completed. If it runs successfully, I will delete this post.
