This suggests you are using an old copy of R. Many time the current  
repository will only be serving packages for the current version of R  
and you will need to locate an archived package if you are for some  
reason reluctant to upgrade.

snipped useless list. It doesn't matter much what packages you have  
installed as far as what appears on that pick-list,  although I do see  
upon updating package::forecast that it also installed  
Rcpp_0.9.10.tgz'  and RcppArmadillo_0.2.36.tgz'

Well, it would not have been spelled that way, but it's either not in  
that repository (which you didn't tell us) or it's not available for  
your R version and OS combination (which I guess you did tell us.)
