My understanding is that packages for r-oldrel-osx-x86_64 will not be 
updated as the build machine has died.  Simon Urbanek has asked CRAN to 
remove those results, and doing so is in progress.

If you look at


you will see the last package built was on 2018-01-11 .

In any case, package support for R-oldrel (3.3.x) officially finishes 
once the following series (3.4.x) is signed off, which is on Thursday 
this week.
