Is there a problem with the RStudio CRAN mirror?

For the last few hours I have not been able to install packages from the RStudio CRAN mirror. For example:

> install.packages("workflowr")
Installing package into ‘/home/ross/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/3.4’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL ''
Warning in install.packages :
  cannot open URL '': HTTP status was '502 Bad Gateway'
Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb", ...) : 
  cannot open URL ''
Warning in install.packages :
  download of package ‘workflowr’ failed

I changed to a different CRAN mirror and the problem went away.

Just tried it myself and everything is working find. I can install from cloudr mirror.

Yes, there was an issue this morning, that has since been resolved. There will be a post-mortem update Monday.

Thanks. I just changed back to the RStudio mirror and everything is fine again (it wasn't 5 minutes ago). Maybe some internal state got mangled and had to be reset by temporarily switching to a different mirror.
