This issue has been there for a while. When click NEWS on the package update list, the pop-up widows show broken links to the update news. The major reason is that the default link set by RStudio miss "news" in the path. For example, when click readr update news, the url path is https://cran.rstudio.com/web/packages/readr/news.html, but the correct one is https://cran.rstudio.com/web/packages/readr/news/news.html. Please help solve this issue. Thanks.
Hi @frankcsliu! Welcome!
Some version of this problem has been reported at least 3 times on the RStudio issue tracker:
You can find out more about why this happens from those links, but the good news is that it sounds like this is working much better in the RStudio 1.2 Preview release.
