I receive the following error when attempting to Get List of packages in the Package Installer GUI interface:

Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.stathy.com/cran/bin/macosx/universal/contrib/2.7

Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.stathy.com/cran/src/contrib when attempting Get List of CRAN (sources)

However, if specifically downloaded and R CMD INSTALL <pkgname> executed, the packages installed.
