Once one package is downloaded as a zip file, this is kept into a Temp folder 

BioGenerics is another R package, and the system is alerting you it is needed.

You only need to install that package and maybe some other that are required as well

PS: I recommend you to install (and update) packages using RStudio for convenience

  1. Install RStudio
  2. In the console, write setRepositories()    #upper and lower cases as shown
  3. use the keyboard to write 1 2 3 4 5 6  # (leaving a space between numbers). This will select cran and bioconductor repositories
  4. then go to Tools/Install Packages
  5. write the desired packages in the windows, and hit Install

This way you can make easier the installation of packages an their dependences

Hope this help
