Library biom not found.
To install, open R and run the command:
If you already have the biom package installed in a local directory,
please store the path to that directory in an environment variable
called "R_LIBRARY_PATH". This may be necessary if you are running
QIIME on a cluster, and the cluster instances of R don't know about
your local R libraries. If you don't know your R library paths, you
can list them by opening R and running with the command, ".libPaths()".
The current R instance knows about these paths:
In library(lib.name, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE, :
there is no package called ‘biom’
Problem: biom package is not installed in R
"Package ‘biom’ was removed from the CRAN repository."
install R package biomformat
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
Solution of 2019
install development version of the R biom package

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev curl libcurl4-openssl-dev libxml2-dev # Debian/Ubuntu
sudo yum install -y openssl-devel curl libcurl libcurl-devel libxml2 libxml2-devel # CentOS
2) In R: install development tools
to be able to download and install biom from git
