Totally my fault and should fix itself on the next sync.  I created a 
small error when working on the deployment of R 4.0 binaries to CRAN. 
Didn't catch it in time for sync.  My apologizes.

If you need the packages ASAP, use the PPA where they are synced from: 

You can replace the echo and gpg commands with:

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:marutter/rrutter3.5
