you mix base and lattice graphics.

why not 
out_fname <- "MyPlot.png"
result is same

> trellis.device("png", color=TRUE)

here you are setting png device for lattice output

> png(out_fname)

here you set png device for base graphics output

> plot(vect1,type="l",col="red",xlab="Nof Genes", ylab="RMSD")
> plot(vect2,type="l",col="blue")
> plot(vect3,type="l",col="green")  # final graph only showed this one.

You make 3 plots to this device, each time overwriting previous plot.

> dev.off()

Here you end png device for base graphics.

If you insist on not reading let say introduction to R, which is quite 
good for any starting point, then at least look at

?par - especially mfrow, mfcol

and try to test examples which are located on help pages and go through 
some links on those pages

If you want to use Lattice then you shall go through 

and maybe some others and again test provided examples.
