That means you are running the install from a regular account (i.e. non-root). You can accept the suggestion from the installer and use a personal ($HOME) location.

It's not an error, it's just a question. It's one of the things I love about R, how easy it is to install packages as non-root/user. The package (if you accept) will be installed just for you.
