Almost always when you see a message like that, the first course of
action is the following:

install.packages2("bioclabs") ## or whatever you are missing

This should hunt down the package you are looking for and install it
along with any packages it may depend on. Much better than a manual hunt
for the package.

I start End2End Lab but when I get to  library(bioclabs) I get this

Error in library(bioclabs) : There is no package called 'bioclabs'

I tried to find bioclabs but have not had any success.  Seems I am
more time trying to make something work then actually learning 
Bioconductor.  Of course in this process I am learning a lot about 
Bioconductor, but not what I really need to know.

What I really need is a R/Bioconductor for dummies book  that has
I can work through :)
