Hello

When I try to read a dataset in my R notebook, I get the following error:

Hi,

This error is caused by a proxy which intercepts localhost connections.

You can try adding the following line at the beginning of your script:
Sys.unsetenv("http_proxy")

If that does not work, it means it's a transparent proxy and you'll have to see with your system administrator to ask about disabling the proxy on localhost.
