Please do not post bugs on Contributed packages to the main R-bugs repo. This now requires intervention by a member of R Core, none of whom are in a position to resolve the problem. You should contact the package maintainer instead. In this case it is Nitin Jain ( who I have cc'd here.

The problem here is that the current version of gtools for Windows is not passing the required checks before it can be allowed to be included in the main CRAN repo. This can be seen here:

On the above, scroll down to gtools and you will see links for the following error log and interim resolution:

where you will find the last version of gtools for Windows that passed the required checks. This will need to be manually downloaded and may or may not work in the presence of the other related packages given the potential for version related conflicts. I suspect Nitin will have more definitive comments.
