The R 4.1.1 package installers have not been notarized when first released, however, the notarization has been completed after the release. The notarization receipts have been then added to the packages, so the most current releases have the following hashes:
You can check your download for the receipt by comparing the hash above. The actual contents of the released packages are identical, they only vary by the absence or presence of the notarization receipt which allows off-line notarization check. If in doubt, you can always download from http://mac.R-project.org/bin/macosx which has always the latest version.
If you use the files without receipts from Aug 10, they will install since the package itself was notarized, but you will need internet connection to allow installer to pull the notarization receipt from Apple.
