Failed to build INLA for windows-latest (release) with check-standard.yaml

Hello Everyone,

My GitHub Action is failing because it can't build INLA. This is using check-standard.yaml and all but one of the checks pass, the windows-latest (release).

This is strange because it used to pass until about a month ago and I haven't changed anything in the meantime.

This is the error message:

✖ Failed to build INLA 23.04.24
  Error: 
  ! error in pak subprocess
  Caused by error in `stop_task_build(state, worker)`:

  Full installation output:

  cp: unknown option -- )
  Try '/usr/bin/cp --help' for more information.
  ERROR: installing binary package failed

Here's the full log:

Here's the GitHub Action YAML:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Nathan

That seems like a broken package that they serve in their repo:

So you can try to tell them that their package does not work on Windows (at least on R 4.3.1), and/or try using a different R version if it used to work.
