I am having a small problem, and I would like to know what is the one stupid thing I am doing- I am trying to look for datasets for mouse brain in arrayexpress database through R and I am getting an error- My code-

sets = queryAE(keywords = "brain", species = "mus+musculus")

curl: (1) Protocol "https" not supported or disabled in libcurl

Error in download.file(qr, queryfilename, mode = "wb", method = "curl") :

'curl' call had nonzero exit status

Error: XML content does not seem to be XML: 'querybrainmus+musculus.xml'

I have called the library of curl and XML, and still I am unable to look for datasets; also I am connected to the internet! So, I don't understand what 's going on. The package and code looks relatively easy. I would be really glad if someone can help me.

I've added code formatting to your post, please consider doing so when posting code to increase readability. Could you double check if I formatted it right?

Apparently queryAE() uses download.file( ..., method = curl ), which uses your system curl. I am guessing the system curl is old and uses deprecated security protocols, or it was compiled without https support. What is the output of curl --version on the command-line (bash or whatever shell you use, not inside the R interpreter).
