Hi Joel,

As Kasper guessed, we are having some difficulties recreating a CRAN 
repository suitable for use with reposTools.  So you are experiencing a 
"real" error that is on our end.  We hope to have this fixed by the end 
of the week.

However, you will still have a hard time getting the rankProduct 
package.  This package has been removed from the Bioc repository per 
the request of the author.  See the message in the list archive 
subject: [BioC] Error in rankProduct package on Feb 8.

Hope that helps,

+ seth
