i would guess, that's where you need to investigate, figure out why the
install didn't work.  one *possible* reason is that R is trying to
install the libraries to the system-wide library directory, and you
don't have permission to install there.  but, there are a multitude of
other possible failures.

you might start by this: are you able to install other packages?  if
not, you should look in one direction; if so, in another.

sadly, i don't know what that means.

good luck with the debugging!

cheers, Greg
