Certainly biocLite(affy) won't work because biocLite() expects a 
character, and you are passing what will be interpreted as a variable name.

Anyway, you have given so little information that nobody but the Amazing 
Kreskin will be able to help you. Please see the BioC posting guide, and 
supply us with some useful information such as the output of 
sessionInfo(), and a cut and paste of your commands and the result.
