install_version issue when `length(getOption("repos"))>1` #721

It looks like install_version expects getOption("repos") to be a length-1 vector:

options(repos=c("", ""))
## Error in url(sprintf("%s/src/contrib/   Meta/archive.rds", repos), "rb") : invalid 'description' argument

Now set repos to a single element:


works fine.

(This is especially problematic on Windows since the default repos option includes both CRAN and CRANextra ...)
