Sorry the hear that.  From the error messages you report, a better
characterization might be that you are having trouble getting R to
talk to the internet given your proxy setup.

Have you looked over the help for download.file?  That is where the
documentation about proxy setup lives.  You might also want to direct
a question over at R help where there are likely to be more users with
experience setting up HTTP proxies with R.
