install_github('shiny', 'rstudio', 'v/0/2/1')
# Installing github repo(s) shiny/v/0/2/1 from rstudio
# Installing shiny.zip from https://api.github.com/repos/rstudio/shiny/zipball/v/0/2/1
# Error: client error: (404) Not Found

I think GitHub may be switching to new URLs for package downloads. On the Shiny github page for that branch, the download link for the zip file is https://github.com/rstudio/shiny/archive/v/0/2/4/rc.zip.
