What OS ? Are you able to do this successfully ?

"http://www.bioconductor.org/repository/release1.5/package/Source/gpls_1.0.6.tar.gz", destfile="/tmp/junk" )

If yes, that should rule out any firewall problem. If no, then see help
(download.file) or search the R-help archives for solution.

If you are able to download successfully,then it might be some problem
with installation.

Since proteomics comprises only 3 packages, it might be worth to just
download them manually and install it.
