I'm running R v2.7.1 on Mac OS X. When I go to the R package installer GUI,
I am not prompted to select a repository. The usual screen is there but
the columns for package, installed version, and repository version are all
populated via blank entries.
If I select "Get List" the error below occurs. The same thing occurs if I
go form the command line via install.packages. Any suggestions much
