maybe this info is helpful for someone else, at least it is a reminder for me if the problem should reoccur:

The last hours R drove me nuts because it wouldn't install new packages, or more irritating still: It would chose randomly which packages to install when given a list ("unable to move temporary installation" ). The solution was to turn of the indexation of folders.
