This error indicates that you did not install RCurl correctly (in my experience you get this if you 'install' a package by un-gzipping and un-tarring into the library directory instead of using the installation functions supplied as part of base R). Since you are using a version of R that is soon to be one year out of date, and it appears that you have a bunch of busted packages, it is probably easiest to simply install either R-2.7.2, or preferably R-alpha (soon to be R-2.8.0) and re-install BioC and then affycoretools using biocLite(). The other alternative is to keep chasing these packages down until you don't see this error for any of the dependencies. The problem with affycoretools is that it isn't really much of a package itself - it is simply a bunch of wrapper functions that integrate several other packages in what I think is a useful manner. Because of this, it has a huge number of dependencies so you could end up chasing lots of busted packages, which could take much more time than simply re-installing R/BioC.
