Those things happen sometimes. For my (upstream) package Rcpp I frequently
run reverse-depends checks against essetially all 2300+ CRAN packages
depending on it and I currently have three or so that go belly up like
that. I usually just ignore them (for the purposes of my tests, nothings
depends upon them). Sometimes it goes aways under rebuilds of all parts.

The r-base block is now at    "36 days old (needed 5 days)".

If you all could do what it takes to no longer let your packages block it, I
will not be alone in appreciating availability of r-base 4.1.1 in testing.
