[Bioc-devel] Install and check error in Windows without any relevant message

To partially answer myself, on looking more carefully, the INSTALL problem
seems to happen in the call to curl.exe (i.e., not in the R package
installation itself per se). It seems this failed

C:\cygwin\bin\curl.exe -O

even if the tar.gz is actually there. Can I assume this is probably a
transient error?

And if I understand correctly the CHECK error ("Installation failed.
See 'D:/biocbuild/bbs-3.13-bioc/meat/OncoSimulR.Rcheck/00install.out' for
details") it can also be traced to a curl problem?
