[R] Help required for Rcmdr

I've never experienced this problem myself in a general way, and I'm sure that Windows users of R call install.packages() all the time to install packages from CRAN mirrors. So the question to ask, I think, is what's preventing install.packages() from working in your case -- possibly an Internet connectivity problem due to a firewall, proxy server, use of https, etc. I'm sure that others more knowledgeable about these issues than I am will be able to make more specific suggestions for fixing the problem.

I don't know if that problem is related to the Rcmdr package itself..
(Sekhar try to install any other packages..)
I am experiencing the same problem, in that when typing
I get the message
package ‘_ANY_PACKAGE_’ is not available (for R version 3.2.3)
But I can download the .zip file and unzip it..
I tried different CRAN mirrors...
