You certainly have. Try starting R with --vanilla and it should go away.
If so, see ?Startup and look at the various files it mentions. Do you
have a .Rprofile? Have you changed Rprofile.site ... ?
The message comes from contrib.url(): most likely you have a call to
update.packages() in a startup file.
