[Rd] Unable to Install Packages from Binaries on Windows for R 3.2.3

Installing packages from binaries on Windows seems broken, when using
mirrors that are up to date with CRAN

  type = 'binary',
  repos = "https://cran.rstudio.com/"

Changing repos to the Kansas CRAN mirror installs the package as expected,
but that could be because the KS mirror has not yet synced.

Someone pointed out that the PACKAGES.gz file at
https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/3.2/ seems to be corrupted
(0 KB), and this could be the issue.
