[R-SIG-Mac] Package Manager down

Hi, following an error in fitting a simulation model (using Zelig) I
decided to check to see if I had the latest versions of various
packages installed. To shortcut this I requested that all packages
be updated using Package Installer. This seemed to proceed OK until I
received an error message saying something to the effect that it was
unable to uninstall MASS (presumably to update it?). I then went to
Package Manager to see what version of MASS was actually installed (I
was running under R 2.6.2 - so I had assumed that MASS would be fully
up to date). I was unable to switch off or on MASS and the following
Error in package.manager(is.loaded, pkgs, pkgs.desc, pkgs.url) :
invalid arguments (length mismatch)
In addition: Warning message:
In .find.package(pkgs) : there is no package called 'file3ab50c2a'
I reinstalled R, but the above error appeared once again when I used
the menu selection for Package Manager.
I'm working on a Mac G5 Dual core Intel OS version 10.5.1.
Any suggestions would be very welcome.
