Question

I tried loading in a LabKey table, but I am getting another error which says curl::curl_fetch_memory() : Proxy CONNECT aborted due to timeout. Can I do something about this?

Answer

Yes, you can resolve this. In April 2020, we have changed our LabKey server to an https address. Unfortunately, this caused the R LabKey API to query the .Renviron file leading it to the proxy that we use for BioConductor. As a result of this, the LabKey API cannot properly connect to the right server subsequently crashing out. To resolve this issue, the .Renviron file now needs to contain the following line:

no_proxy="localhost,127.0.0.1,localaddress,.localdomain.com,.gel.zone"
