Follow this:

#To install core packages:
source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite()
#To install specific packages
source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("snpStats")

Obviously, you don't have the permission to install package to the R library folder.

  1. add the following lines to ~/.Renviron: R_LIBS_USER='~/R/library'

  2. try again:

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("snpStats")

You should be able to install any package you want.

you may need to mkdir -p ~/R/library if it complained that the folder does not exists.

With the latest update you have to do the same but install BiocManager : This is done only for version R > 3.4

  if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
    install.packages("BiocManager")
BiocManager::install()

and then :

BiocManager::install(c("snpStats"))

works for now
