Hello,

I'm using R's developer version. I need developer version of a library and hence R's unstable release. 

So, I download latest R developer version, compile it on local directory.   

> sessionInfo()
R Under development (unstable) (2018-01-08 r74099)
Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)

I'd need to install bioconductor packages locally.  

When I try to reach to bioClite script I get error:

> source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
Error in file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) :
  cannot open the connection to 'https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R'
In addition: Warning message:
In file(filename, "r", encoding = encoding) :
  URL 'https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R': status was 'Couldn't connect to server'

 

I tried removing s from http as well, but seems not to work.

Tried below option too but in vain:

options(download.file.method="libcurl", url.method="libcurl")
source("https://www.bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")

Can someone please help? Thanks. 

I've looked at other similar issues but can't seem to get them working.

This sounds like an issue with your organization's internet proxy. See the help page ?download.file for information on working with proxies; you may need to consult with your local network administrators for specific help.
