Here is the failure with getBioC() - I have the function from download.file()

If you encounter problems, first make sure that
you are running the latest version of getBioC()
which can be found at: www.bioconductor.org/getBioC.R
Please direct any concerns or questions to bioconductor at stat.math.ethz.ch.
cannot open: HTTP status was `407 Proxy Authentication Required'
Error in getBioC(method = "wget") : Your R can not connect to the Bioconductor
website, which is required for getBioC to work properly. The most likely
cause of this is the internet configuration of R
