That's not bug in R! Please send questions to r-help rather than r-bugs.

Either you have no write access to the library install.packages() tries 
to install the package in, or you have loaded lattice before and Windows 
has locked some files (probably the any dll or help file).

If the former, try to install into a different library you have got 
write access to.
If the latter, restart R without loading the library and try again.
