Hi Idor:

I have never had much success with either MELPA or ELPA.  Something about
my TLS setup that I have not figured how to fix.  But, I did receive an email 
we are available at ELPA too (however, I can’t test the veracity of that

Noted. I did not know that ESS is distributed via MELPA.

can simply M-x package-install packages from ELPA repositories.

That's up to you to decide if ESS is in stable state or not.
You may find
