Conrad released a new Armadillo version for which we had prepared and tested a
pre-release.  The new version is at CRAN -- but CRAN, presumably busy enough
with the upcoming R 4.0.0 release and the new toolchain for Windows -- broke
the Windows build which no longer contains some of the (complex valued)
LAPACK function some of the Armadillo code needs. You can see that here too:


Only CRAN can fix this, but I have no insight into how long it may take.

In the meantime, I also uploaded the same .tar.gz to the Rcpp drat so if you
want it sooner (and can install from source), a simple

  install.packages("RcppArmadillo", repos="https://rcppcore.github.io/drat")

will do. If you're on macOS, do 

  install.packages(c("Rcpp",RcppArmadillo"), repos="https://rcppcore.github.io/drat")

instead to a version of Rcpp compatible with the newer SDK.
