A bug in the Windows builds currently prevents Octave from automatically
retrieving packages from the website for installation or updates. This will
be fixed in the next Octave release. Until then, manual package installation
is necessary to update or install new packages on Windows.
Sorry, this appears to be a bit out of date. I think it was valid for 4.2.0, and someone just updated the numbers on the page to 4.2.1 without noting that the bug was fixed in that version. Note that from some discussion on the help list it seems the bug will still persist for anyone running Windows XP.
