The navigation to previous versions of BioConductor is currently broken. For example on the page:

https://www.bioconductor.org/packages/3.0/BiocViews.html#___Software

no packages load. I was only able to download the particular package I wanted via some URL reverse engineering. This is made more complex since directory listing is disabled. This has the side effect of hiding all these packages from Google, as well.

I was eventually able to get to this URL:

http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/3.0/bioc/src/contrib/DNAcopy_1.40.0.tar.gz

but searching the web for just "DNAcopy_1.40.0.tar.gz" will not let me find this package.

You have encountered a bug which we will fix but luckily there is a workaround. Change your url to

http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/3.0/BiocViews.html#___Software

In other words, change it from https to http.
