Do you have the current VR build?  Long, long ago (ca January) a rogue
version got onto CRAN and then CRAN failed to mirror the replacement
for a while.

You should *not* be unzipping in MASS\data, and in doing so you have
probably damaged your installation.  I think you need to remove whatever
version of VR you have and install the current version.

MASS\data needs to contain

     4210  04-20-01 15:49   MASS/data/00Index
     1108  04-20-01 15:57   MASS/data/filelist
   160636  04-20-01 15:57   MASS/data/Rdata.zip

Don't touch any of them.
