Exactly as before. I set my mirror as I have before and nothing changes

  ## We set the cloud mirror, which is 'network-close' to everybody, as default
      r <- getOption("repos")
      r["CRAN"] <- "https://cloud.r-project.org"
      options(repos = r)

I cannot help but think that you are shooting the messenger (here
Rprofile.site) for an actual behaviour change in R itself ?
