Dear list

I am trying installing a package under unix, the command as below works in some case but not some other cases, the primary syndrome is R will stop there with a message: (say I am trying to install the package SASxport)

###########################

Warning in install.packages("SASxport", dependencies = TRUE) :   argument 'lib' is missing: using
'/usr/home/d/068/wangyong/R/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu-library/2.7' Warning: unable to access index for repository http://lib.stat.cmu.edu/R/CRAN/src/contrib
#############################

My internet connection has no problem, why this happen? or can you suggest some more options or examples to follow for package installation under unix?

Thank you

will
