I'm having trouble updating packages. Scenario is I've selected  
Package Installer with CRAN (binaries), a single package, then  
'Install Selected' and I get the following error.

trying URL 'http://cran.au.r-project.org/bin/macosx/universal/contrib/2.6/fSeries_260.72.tgz'
Content type 'application/x-tar' length 164519 bytes (160 Kb)
opened URL
downloaded 160 Kb

  *** caught bus error ***
address 0x20, cause 'non-existent physical address'

  1: unlink(instPath, recursive = TRUE)
  2: unpackPkg(foundpkgs[okp, 2], foundpkgs[okp, 1], lib,  
  3: .install.macbinary(pkgs = pkgs, lib = lib, contriburl =  
contriburl,     method = method, available = available, destdir =  
destdir,     installWithVers = installWithVers, dependencies =  
  4: install.packages(c("fSeries"), lib = "/Library/Frameworks/ 
R.framework/Resources/library/",     contriburl =  
contrib.url(getOption("repos"), "mac.binary"),     type =  
"mac.binary", dependencies = TRUE)

Possible actions:
1: abort (with core dump, if enabled)
2: normal R exit
3: exit R without saving workspace
4: exit R saving workspace

I have tried other mirrors and also 'Update All'
