Hello,

I am running R 2.1.0 on Windows 2000.

When I attempt to install or update packages, regardless of whether I use the menu or command line, I get the following error.

> utils:::chooseCRANmirror()
> utils:::menuInstallPkgs()

Warning message:
unable to connect to 'cran.cnr.Berkeley.edu' on port 80. Warning: unable to access index for repository
http://cran.cnr.Berkeley.edu/bin/windows/contrib/2.1 Warning message:
unable to connect to 'www.stats.ox.ac.uk' on port 80. Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows/contrib/2.1 Error in install.packages(NULL, .libPaths()[1], dependencies = TRUE, type = type) :

        no packages were specified

I have uninstalled and reinstalled R 2.1.0 to no avail. I read through the recent treads on similar problems, but if an answer to my problem we given, I missed it.

Thanks
