They don't appear to show up within my package Installer search, but  
it seems unlikely that would be a persistent problem since it is a  
recommended package and the docs say that the R Core Team is the  
maintainer. Isn't that package part of the default installation? The  
stats package doesn't show up either which suggests that using the  
package manager is not the right way to access the package. I'm  
guessing that you should try:
