Dear R Helpers,
(I am using Ubuntu lucid and R 2.13.0
When I try to update packages I get this error:

> update.packages()

--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Error in ret[i, ] <- c(pkgs[i], lib, desc) :   number of items to replace is not a multiple of replacement length

I had no problem before (case 1) but now (case 2) I cannot get it to work, googleing did not help:
case 1:

I set the proxy in terminal too but it does not help (echo $http_proxy gives me
