Package ‘remotes’ is not available (for R version 3.6.0)

Hi All,

I’m seeing some failures that I can’t track down.

Installing R packages: remotes
$ Rscript -e ‘install.packages(c(“remotes”));if (!all(c(“remotes”) %in% installed.packages())) { q(status = 1, save = “no”)}’
Installing package into ‘/home/travis/R/Library’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning: unable to access index for repository https://cloud.r-project.org/src/contrib:
cannot open URL ‘https://cloud.r-project.org/src/contrib/PACKAGES
Warning message:
package ‘remotes’ is not available (for R version 3.6.0)
The command “Rscript -e ‘install.packages(c(“remotes”));if (!all(c(“remotes”) %in% installed.packages())) { q(status = 1, save = “no”)}’” failed and exited with 1 during .

I hadn’t run a build for a while and the changes I made didn’t seem to warrant failures of this nature.

Any idea? Anyone seen anything similar before?

Thanks,
Roy

Adding …

r:
  - oldrel

… to my .travis.yml fixed things.

Assume this is an issue with building 3.6.0?

Cheers,
Roy
