It is decomissioned. See the current FAQ on CRAN, which says
Sources are also available via `https://svn.r-project.org/R/', the R
Subversion repository, but currently not via anonymous rsync (or CVS).

To get R from svn.r-project.org you need an svn client

svn co https://svn.r-project.org/R/trunk R-devel
## to update
