I'm trying to use GEOquery's getGEO for downloading the series matrix file of several studies using their GEO accessions, from my linux cluster.

I originally tried:

geo.accession <- "GSE11675"
out.dir <- "~/Downloads/GSE11675"
GEOquery::getGEO(GEO = geo.accession, GSEMatrix = T, AnnotGPL = T, getGPL = T, destdir = out.dir)


And this is the output I get:
Found 2 file(s)

downloaded 0 bytes

Error in download.file(sprintf("",  : 
  cannot download all files
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(sprintf("",  :
  URL '': status was '404 Not Found'


The GEO accession GSE11675 is actually from the GEOquery vignette:


I get the same error even when just running:

GEOquery::getGEO(GEO = geo.accession)


Similarly, if I try to get a specific file, for example:



I get an error:

downloaded 0 bytes

Error in download.file(file.path(url, i), destfile = file.path(storedir,  : 
  cannot download all files
In addition: Warning message:
In download.file(file.path(url, i), destfile = file.path(storedir,  :
  URL '': status was '404 Not Found'


And both happen for both:

It looks like you are using a pretty old version of R/Bioconductor. I suspect that an upgrade to R and then re-installing GEOquery will fix the problem.
