I am using R version 2.15 under Mac OS X 10.6.8
When i try to install the qrqc package using


I get the following error message
BioC_mirror: http://www.bioconductor.org
Using R version 2.15, BiocInstaller version 1.4.4.
Warning: unable to access index for repository 
Installing package(s) 'qrqc'
Error: Line starting '<!DOCTYPE html PUBLI ...' is malformed!
Error in library(qrqc) : there is no package called ‘qrqc’

I think the first part of the error is perhaps related to the CRAN mirror - 
but even when I use this 
alternative suggested elsewhere on gmane 

biocLite("qrqc", type="source")

I get a series of error message - the end of which is

ERROR: dependency ‘biovizBase’ is not available for package ‘qrqc’
* removing ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/2.15/Resources/library/qrqc’

The downloaded source packages are in
Error: Line starting '<!DOCTYPE html PUBLI ...' is malformed!

Any help with what I am doing wrong would be appreciated.
