Hi Stephen,
Thanks very much for getting back to me. My problem is described below. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, James

Sorry for bothering you because I know that your time is voluntary, but I would really appreciate some help. I work in a hospital in part of Ireland’s national health service, a service which was struck by a massive cyber attack a couple of years ago. Since then their security has been very tight, and I can’t access the internet through my R or R Studio. To install packages I need to download the files through a browser (Chrome by default) and install them from the files, which is very tedious when you consider the amount of dependencies, but I’m happy to do it.

This was working fine until yesterday when I had error messages trying to install some packages. See enclosed “S2” for example. It looks like it is trying to download a file as part of the installation, but of course can’t. If you could help with this I would be very grateful. Other examples are jqr, protolite, curl.

I came across a different error message when trying to install openssl, although the issue may be the same. For this package it says

Warning in file(name, "wb") :
  cannot open file 'openssl/tests/keys/message.rsa.crypt': Permission denied
Error in file(name, "wb") : cannot open the connection

I have tried going into the archive of these packages and installing older versions, but no luck with those either.
I hope you can help. Best wishes, James

Maybe I missed the rest of the post? You are more likely to get help with your problems if you create a minimal reproducible example.
