Oh, please: that is a warning, not an error and not a problem!

R looks on the CRAN master for an up-to-date list of mirrors, and your machine cannot see the CRAN mirror. It falls back to the list of mirrors knwon when the R version was released.

If this persists, set e.g.

options(repos=c(CRAN="http://cms.unipune.ernet.in/computing/cran/"))

in your .Rprofile file (see ?Startup).
