install.packages problem

Rui Barradas
Hello,

R 3.4.1 on Windows 7, sessionInfo at the end.
Is there a problem with install.packages? Since last friday every time I
try to install a package in RGui, I start by choosing the CRAN mirror
Cloud-0 and RGui hangs. So I restart RGui and choose Portugal (Lisbon)
and get the following warning after a long while (minutes).

install.packages("igraph")
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
Warning: unable to access index for repository
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/src/contrib:
   cannot open URL 'http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/src/contrib/PACKAGES'
Warning: unable to access index for repository
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows/contrib/3.4:
   cannot open URL
'http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows/contrib/3.4/PACKAGES'

   There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
        binary source needs_compilation
igraph  1.0.1  1.1.1              TRUE

Do you want to install from sources the package which needs compilation?
y/n: y
installing the source package ‘igraph’

trying URL 'http://cran.radicaldevelop.com/src/contrib/igraph_1.1.1.tar.gz'
Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 3376077 bytes (3.2 MB)
downloaded 3.2 MB
[...]

The rest of the process goes on with success.
The problem seems to be with http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/src/contrib

When I check
 > options("repos")
$repos
                                 CRAN                            CRANextra
     "http://cran.radicaldevelop.com" "http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin"

I'm lead to think that install.packages should try
"http://cran.radicaldevelop.com" first, only in case of failure CRANextra.

What is going on?

As (I think) you notice below yourself, the problem is not with
the regular CRAN repos but with the  'CRANextra'  repos that
R users of Windows use sometimes.

We had heard offline of a potential timeout/downtime for a short
period at Oxford for that, so this may be the simple explanation.

On the other hand everything ends up working fine,
so all this is just a warning, right?

If I do the same thing I don't have to wait and get the same
warning as you (and when I then decide to use the older *binary*
for igraph that is installed fine).

Re: install.packages problem on Windows: CRANextras timeout

Rui Barradas
Hello,

Thanks for the answer.
No, in the end there's no problem, just a warning.
