I encountered the following, for my package at github.com/dankelley/oce, an it seems to me that appveyor is using the new R (4.0.0) but without updating the remotes package. I thought I ought to point it out, in case it will be a problem for anyone checking R packages here.

Thanks very much for appveyor!!

Installing dependencies
+ Rscript -e 'options(repos = c(CRAN = "https://cloud.r-project.org"), download.file.method = "auto"); remotes::install_deps(dependencies = TRUE, type="win.binary")'
Error: package 'remotes' was installed before R 4.0.0: please re-install it
