That package is no longer listed on CRAN.  You can find some versions of 
it in https://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive, the most recent 
being from 2018.  I'd guess it doesn't pass all checks, so it was removed.

You could download the last version, and see if you can get it to work. 
  If you are really ambitious, you might be able to take it over as 

Or it might be easier to find a different package to do what you want to do.
