You wrong: please upgrade to R-2.2.1!
The 2.0.x repository is no longer supported (nor the 2.1.x one!)

I wrong: Hmmm, looks like I forgot to finally sync the 2.0 directory after moving to newer versions.
The last Matrix version is available from http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/last/Matrix_0.95-5.zip (you can install it manually, for example).
