If we click on the Cancel button after the Packages | Install menu items in 
Windows 2.1.1 (dated 2005-06-23) it gives an error message.   There
really should
be no error here since we intended not to install anything -- that is why
we pressed Cancel.  This is what appears on the console:

> utils:::menuInstallPkgs()
Error in install.packages(NULL, .libPaths()[1], dependencies = TRUE,
type = type) :
        no packages were specified
