As Benilton pointed out, you have a stale version of affyio.  This

I would strongly recommend maintaining separate package libraries for
each version of R and Bioconductor.  This will help one avoid subtle
(and not so subtle) version mismatch issues.  After an initial install
into a _new_ pacakge library, you can update the set of installed
packages like this:
