Do you have write permission on the library into which you are trying to
install package Matrix? In particular, have you really deleted the
package from the right library?
Do you have the package loaded (R should tell it, hence I do not believe
this is the problem)? If this is a library used by multiple users, does
any of those users have the package loaded?
