Hello. I am having trouble downloading the lme4 package from the CRAN site. The error is:  

> local({a <- CRAN.packages()
+ install.packages(select.list(a[,1],,TRUE), .libPaths()[1], available=a, dependencies=TRUE)})
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/PACKAGES' Content type `text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1' length 26129 bytes opened URL
downloaded 25Kb  

also installing the dependencies 'Matrix', 'latticeExtra', 'mlmRev'  

trying URL
`http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/Matrix_0.95-5.zip' Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb") :

        cannot open URL
`http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/Matrix_0.95-5.zip' In addition: Warning message:
cannot open: HTTP status was `404 Not Found'  

Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong?
