The Bioconductor Docker images are based on rocker/rstudio which means they already have pandoc installed. liftr tries to install pandoc on the container and this fails. The dockerfile should only attempt to install pandoc if it is not already installed. Thanks.

@dtenenba - hi Dan, this issue has been fixed in the current version (v0.2) on GitHub. Try devtools::install_github("road2stat/liftr") to install it. We've also submitted v0.2 to CRAN, waiting to be reviewed. (update: v0.2 is on CRAN now.)

In v0.2, if rocker/rstudio or one of the Bioconductor images is specified, Pandoc will not be installed. We also provided a new option pandoc in the liftr metadata to allow users to control whether to install Pandoc or not.
