I'm on a Linux box and I get no difficulty using:

install.packages("spDataLarge",repos  =  "https://nowosad.github.io/drat/",type  =  "source")

That was the third of three options on its webpage at:


There is an "issue" from Roger Bivand regarding the need for 
type="source: https://github.com/Nowosad/spDataLarge/issues/24

It would seem that `type="source"` might be superfluous since the 
package does not require compilation. At any rate there are two other 
options at that page and you might want to investigate them.
