Looks like you are on Windows.
Apparently (from clicking into the R menu to install a Bioconductor package: "Select repository...", then "Install package(s)..." ), for this *Bioconductor* package, no Windows binary is available. Hence (if possible at all) you have to install the package from sources. You need the required development tools (see the Istallation and Administration manual) and call R CMD INSTALL from the commandline.

For questions on the availability of BioC Windows binary packages please contact the Bioconductor folks and use their mailing list (after looking for documentation why kidpack is not available for Windows, of course).
