I've observed a suspected bug in R-3.60 for Windows 10.
I am using the latest R version, but I have observed the same error in all
releases: alpha, beta RC and released.
Also the same issue occurs in the 32 and 64 bit GUI versions. The program
header I invoke is:
R version 3.6.0 Patched (2019-04-26 r76431) -- "Planting of a Tree"

Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
Specifically, the menu selection Packages -> install packages fails.
When invoked, it simply echoes: utils:::menuInstallPkgs() and returns the
I found the underlying code with the getAnywhere function.
A single object matching 'menuInstallPkgs' was found
It was found in the following places
function (type = getOption("pkgType"))
install.packages(NULL, .libPaths()[1L], dependencies = NA,
type = type)
The first argument, NULL, prevents the underlying function install.packages
I assume this is not intentional awaiting packages to catch up with the
newer R format.
