[BioC] error during installation of genefilter package: "no package 'genefilter' at the repositories"

I have R and the rest of the default packages installed on Debian Linux.

The biocLite script installed all other default packages (about a month 
ago) but failed on the genefilter install, and failed again today when i 
attempted to install only that package, selecting first the Washington 
State repository and then the Illinois repository. Here's what i got 
both times:

 > install.packages("genefilter")

--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
Loading Tcl/Tk interface ... done
Warning in download.packages(unique(pkgs), destdir = tmpd, available =
available,  :
no package 'genefilter' at the repositories

Any advice?
