Your system does not contain a personal library where all the packages will be saved. When a dialog appears asking if you’d like to use a personal library instead, click on yes.

This question appears if your user environment is restricted such as on a cooperate network. Opening [R] with administrative privileges will resolve the issue. 

So say no

On windows open [R] by right clicking and selecting "Run as Administrator"
