In reference to the thread
http://tolstoy.newcastle.edu.au/R/devel/04/10/0859.html

I have the same problem updating packages with newly-installed version of released version of R 2.0.1. Previous posts refer to a bug in windows. I wonder if there is a work-around? This probably should go to R-help but it follows on from the post in R-devel. Apologies in advance.

OS: Windows XP Professional, with current patches. I have administrator rights. R version 2.0.1 released version (newly re-installed).

Problem:
update.packages() downloads the binaries, but installation stops with the same error message, and the package to be upgraded disappears entirely:

package 'boot' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked bundle 'VR' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

package 'cluster' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
package 'foreign' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
package 'KernSmooth' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
package 'lattice' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
package 'nlme' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
Error: Can not remove prior installation of package 'nlme' In addition: Warning message:
