Error in GDCprepare step of TCGAbiolinks

Ankita Lawarde
   Dear Sir/ma'am,

I'm using R-3.4.4 and TCGAbiolinks package for the analysis of GDC data.
Till today i have reintalled R and R studio for 5 times but one error comes
when i analyze the GDC data at the step GDCprepare. the data i am using is
not a legacy data of GDC data portal.

I think the problem is with my Laptop only because i have run the same
commands in another PC and there was no error. Thus i have uninstalled and
again installed the R but the error is not going.

Today i have installed the developer version of TCGAbiolinks. and the error
is still there.

I have attached the code used and the session info.

Every time i run this GDCprepare command this same error comes as biomart
service is not available. So i had contaced the Biomart people but they
said that the Biomart is working fine.

below is the complete R code i am usign with the corresponding error,


query.exp <- GDCquery(project = "TCGA-LUAD",
                      data.category = "Transcriptome Profiling",
                      data.type = "Gene Expression Quantification",
                      workflow.type = "HTSeq - Counts",
                      experimental.strategy = "RNA-Seq")

query_load <- GDCdownload(query.exp)

luad.exp <- GDCprepare(query = query.exp, save = TRUE, save.filename =
                       summarizedExperiment = TRUE)
