It look like you are installing the development version of
GenomicRanges -- are you doing so intentionally?

If yes: are the rest of the Bioconductor packages using the devel version?

Why don't you install using biocLite?

There are some tips on how to run with devel here:

and in the help file you get when you run this in your R console:

In particular, note the instructions in the help file for having
different directories for each bioconductor version, which it seems
like you aren't doing given the choice of destination directory you
are installing into here:
