Problem with Dependencies

My R package is failing appveyor because when appveyor downloads dependent remotes it produces a warning about R version available for these packages. These packages can be downloaded on the version it says is not possible. See failed build here:

Is there anything to add to the .yml to still pass the build?

    It looks like it doesn't fail at the install dependencies warning but rather on the R CMD step.
    Is your question regarding making that step succeed or how to successfully install your dependencies?

    Hi Owen,

    I would just like the package to pass. I thought it was failing due to the dependencies. Can I fix it failing the R CMD step?

    Unfortunately I'm almost completely ignorant when it comes to R development.
    But looking through your build history, it looks like those dependencies (aliviateR and extrantsr) were not successfully resolved in any build. Does this build pipeline work for you on your local dev machine?

    Understandable! I am completely ignorant with appveyor. It does build with no errors on my local machine and using Travis.

    Are you building on a windows environment locally and using Travis?

    Can you try your build on newer build image by adding

    image: Visual Studio 2017
    to your appveyor.yml.
