Please do not use http://r-forge.r-project.org/ to install tikzDevice.
We no longer update tikzDevice on R-Forge. It may be a problem of your
CRAN mirror. When in doubt, try the RStudio mirror (the chance that
Amazon CloudFront is down should be much smaller than a single metal
server somewhere):

install.packages("tikzDevice", repos="https://cran.rstudio.com")
# make sure your version of R supports https
