Hi,

I'm trying to use Seqinfo() function from GenomeInfoDb package, sadly, i got an URL error when I execute the function

I currently use R version 3.3.2 with GenomeInfoDb package version 1.10.2

> Seqinfo(genome="hg38")
Error in file(file, "rt") : cannot open connection
In addition: Warning message:
In file(file, "rt") :
  URL 'https://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/ASSEMBLY_REPORTS/All/GCF_000001405.26.assembly.txt': status was '404 Not Found'

I got the same problem with others genomes like hg19... And yes, my internet connection is on.

When I copy paste the URL in a web browser i got an error, so I think that the link is just broke. I need a work around on this problem. By modifying the URL path ? Using an other function ?

Thanks for your time !
