You appear to be running Windows but Rsubread is only available for Unix or Mac, not Windows. This is a frequently asked question:

I agree that the message from BiocManager could be more helpful, in fact the remarks about compiling the source code are quite misleading.

There is no way around it. Rsubread would need quite a bit of extra code, especially with respect to multi-threading, before it could be made available for Windows.

Edit 29 August 2019

Starting from version 1.99.0, Rsubread is now available for Windows as well as the other platforms. For the moment, this is only for the developmental version of Bioconductor.
