### Is the SAGE_SERVER set correctly?

I'm trying to install the Macaulay experimental package but I can't get sage to talk to the internet. I know I want to install macaulay2-1.1-r7221.p0.spkg

SO, I did what the error message suggested and it didn't do anything. It appears that the program is pointing to the wrong url (there is an extra slash appearing!). How do I fix this?
