Timeout R package installation from github

I'm trying to install a package from github for R with

devtools
package.
But I'm encountering Timeout error from curl each time!


install_github('ramhiser/datamicroarray')


Error in curl::curl_fetch_disk(url, x$path, handle = handle) :
Timeout was reached


Any Idea why this happens? Any help will be appreciated.

When I want to download this package it also takes long to get a connection but in the end it works as expected. Another possibility is to download the zip file and then install it.

To install the package after downloading, the following code works:

install.packages("/address/to/zip-package", repos = NULL, type="source")

and write the address of the downloaded package in place of /address/to/zip-package, or use RStudio and Packages -> Install.
