Dear Eliot,

Users cannot update those packages because they don't have the correct
privileges to the library directory inside the R installation. If the
administrator gives enough priviliges to the users so that they can modify
all within the library directory, then the users should be able to update
those packages.

Best regards,

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more
than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say
what the experiment died of. ~ Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher
The plural of anecdote is not data. ~ Roger Brinner
The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not
ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
