I have started getting an error when using getSymbols for FRED in quantmod. It was working fine a few weeks ago. I'm using R on a Mac:
getSymbols("CPIAUCSL", src="FRED")Error in download.file(paste(FRED.URL, "/", Symbols[[i]], "/", "downloaddata/", : cannot open URL 'http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/series/CPIAUCSL/downloaddata/CPIAUCSL.csv'
If I paste the URL in the error message into a browser it downloads the csv fine, so I think the url is ok.It also works ok for other sources, such as yahoo etc.
Any insights would be appreciated.
