I don't see an empty page, I see an explanation for the problem:

Error in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), 
versionCheck = vI[[j]]) :
   there is no package called 'lme4'
Calls: <Anonymous> ... loadNamespace -> withRestarts -> withOneRestart 
-> doWithOneRestart
Execution halted
ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'replicateBE'

If you look at the lme4 page, you'll see it succeeded, so this was 
probably a transient error while it was being rebuilt.

If you see nothing "as usual", there may be a problem at your end 
stopping you from downloading the info.
