problem downloading R

Dick Mathews
I am trying to download the Windows version of R. This computer is Win7,
I do have Win10 computers also.

Tried R4.0.4, got message these files are corrupted.

Then tried R4.0.3, got same message as above.

Tried the next, R4.0.2, got same message.

I checked to see if I was downloading the proper version, seems okay.

What is the problem? Can anybody help me with this?

Not much. Try a different mirror site. Try disabling anti-virus download filters. If you are using a cloud-backed directory like OneDrive, try downloading and installing on a standard local disk.

Which mirror are you using?  I'd recommend using cloud.r-project.org .
If you get the same problem on that mirror, then you've likely got
something interfering with your download.  You could try using a
different machine to download, and install from a USB stick or some
other non-network method.

Does the following sound familiar?

The Windows installer starts installing (or decompressing) R, flashing
one file name at a time.
And then, part way through, says XXXX file is corrupt, and gives you
the choice to ignore.
And if you click ignore, then the next file does the same thing.
And one quickly realizes, that every subsequent file will have the same message.

Then if you re-download the installation file, the same thing happens.
Except that the first file flagged as corrupted, is not necessarily
the same file.

Sounds like you always got corrupted vesions. Either an issue with your
connection or the mirror. What happens if you try another mirror and
clear your browser caches?

Best,

Re: problem downloading R

aBBy Spurdle, ⍺XY
This was quite some time ago.
Namely, 2019.

At the time, I was using a mix of old Windows 8 and 9 computers.
The problem happened on Windows 8, but not Windows 9.

Note that I was trying to help the OP.
Beyond that, I'm not concerned about it.
