I cannot download the sqlite file anymore:

trying URL ''
Error in download.file(url_geo, destfile = localfile, mode = "wb") :
  cannot open URL ''


I've had the same problem with sradb for a while, until the links has been changed for a aws repository.

Sorry for the recent instability. We have switched the GEOmetadb package over to AWS hosting as we did with SRAdb. I just made the change to GEOmetadb in both release and devel, so expect the change to be available from bioconductor in about 36 hours or so. If you need something sooner, installing from github ('seandavi/GEOmetadb') should get you the fix now.
