Subject: [R] How prevent update of a package

I use R 3.6.1 in macOSX 10.15.1 (Catalina).

I cannot install the last version (3.0-7) of the package raster from
source or from binary. In both cases I get

??*** caught segfault ***
address 0x31, cause 'memory not mapped'

when I try to load it.

Same occurs when I use the development version using:


This is the same bug as described here:

The last working version for me is the 2.5-8

install_version("raster", version = "2.5-8", repos =

However, each time that I use update.packages(), raster wants to be updated.

So here my three questions:

- Does someone has a solution to have raster 3.0-7 working in MacOSX ?

- Do others have raster 3.0-7 working in R 3.6.1 and Catalina MacOSX ?

- How to prevent raster package to be updated ?

Thanks a lot
