Hi all,

after compiling R-3.4.2 on opensuse leap 42.3, make check failed. Until
R-3.4.1 I never had a problem with these tests. No, the programm stops
at the following line of tests/reg-tests-1d.R:

> ## available.packages() (not) caching in case of errors
> tools::assertWarning(ap1 <- available.packages(repos = "http://foo.bar"))
> tools::assertWarning(ap2 <- available.packages(repos = "http://foo.bar")) 
    error in assertCondition(expr, "warning",
   .exprString = d.expr) :  Got simpleError evaluating of ap2 <-
   available.packages(repo  ...: wanted warning

The error message is a result of:      ap2 <- available.packages(repos =
not of the following condition in the test script:   stopifnot(nrow(ap1)
== 0, identical(ap1, ap2))  .

ap1 <- available.packages(repos = "http://foo.bar") works well, but the
following line stops the program.

After replacing "http://foo.bar" by "http://foo.poi" (every phrase
different from "bar" works well), reg-test-1d.R passed without error
message the interpreter.

Has someone an idea why the original program code stops (only) at line
tools::assertWarning(ap2 <- available.packages(repos =

With many thanks for every hint,
