Sorry to answer my own question, but I found a way out (only specific to tikzDevices):

install.packages("tikzDevice", repos="http://R-Forge.R-project.org")
It would be nice to have a general approach, especially when R updated does not mostly mean that packages installed under and earlier version of R stop working.
