Error in open.connection(x, "rb") : Timeout was reached:

I am new here, so apologies if I make noob mistakes.

I am trying to create databases after webscrapping multiple of HTML files. The Html page name is same except for the number which changes.

URL is something like this: (CTRI) where, # = any number.
Following is my code, which works perfectly fine for single URL separately. But I want to scale up the code to read multiple pages through loop. This is giving me error. I tried configuring my proxy details and still the error stays.

set_config(use_proxy(url="http://proxy.*******", port=****))

ids = c(1:10)
counter = 0

for (i in seq_along(ids)) {
  myurl = paste("", i) 
  myurl = gsub(" ","",myurl)
  if(http_error(myurl)) next
  download.file(myurl, destfile = "mypage.html", quiet = TRUE)
  pointer = read_html(myurl)
  webpage = html_nodes(pointer, "tr") 
  webpage = html_table(webpage)
  webpage = webpage[[1]]
  webpage = webpage[-1,]
  commonTable = NULL

  commonTable$CTRI_Number = as.character(webpage %>% 
                                        filter(X1 %like% "CTRI Number") %>% 
                                        select(X2) %>% 
  commonTable$reg_type = as.character(webpage %>% filter(X1 %like% "CTRI Number") %>% select(X2))

  commonTable$Registered_on = as.character(webpage %>% 
                                         filter(X1 %like% "CTRI Number") %>% 
                                         select(X2) %>% 

  reg_details = data.frame(CTRI_Number = commonTable$CTRI_Number,
                         Registered_on = commonTable$Registered_on,
                         reg_type = commonTable$reg_type)

  dbWriteTable(mydb, "reg_details", reg_details, append = TRUE)
  write.table(reg_details, "reg_details.csv", sep = ",",row.names = FALSE, col.names = !file.exists("reg_details.csv"), append = T)

I'm getting this error.

` Error in open.connection(x, "rb") : Timeout was reached: [] Connection timed out after 10000 milliseconds`

Please help. Thankyou.
