Cannot install packages on Azure HDInsight R Server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have done this deployment many times in the last 2 years as part of student projects, the last time I did successfully was about 2 months ago.  However 2 weeks ago i experienced error when I tried to install 3 R packages to the Azure HDInsight nodes:  Head, Edge and Worker using Script Actions

    What I did are as follow:

    1. Deploy Azure HDInsight with R server
    2. Once cluster completely deployed and running ; we run script action
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Microsoft/r-server-loan-chargeoff/master/HDI/ActionScripts/InstallRPackages.sh
    with parameter hashFunction sparklyr smbinning to install those 3 packages with target edge, head and worker
    3. script action completed with green check ; but the R packages were not deployed
    4. I check Ambari error and show the error as below:

    Warning: unable to access index for repository https://mran.microsoft.com/snapshot/2017-03-15/src/contrib:
    Line starting '<head><title>Documen ...' is malformed!
    Warning message:
    package ‘hashFunction’ is not available (for R version 3.3.3)

    5. I tried to install hashFunction on edge by directly run install.pacakages("hashFunction") but also experiences same error

    Warning: unable to access index for repository https://mran.microsoft.com/snapshot/2017-03-15/src/contrib:
    Line starting '<head><title>Documen ...' is malformed!
    Warning message:
    package ‘hashFunction’ is not available (for R version 3.3.3)

    Could you please help me to fix the problem.

    Thank you very much
