Then you probably want to post to the bioconductor mailing list instead of
the R mailing list.

There are lots of things that could be wrong, but since the site actually
is currently active they are most likely to be related to your end.

The first step is to see if install functionality (install.packages,
download.packages, the pulldown if you're using Windows) work for
non-bioconductor software.  If not, then the second step is to see
question 2.17 in the R for Windows FAQ.
