Not sure what the problem is. Can you post your sessionInfo() ? Also, is it an option for you to upgrade to R-3.3.0 and Bioconductor 3.3? It may not solve this problem but it is recommended.

Actually, it didnt want to install on a custom directory, but did install on the personal lib one, which is a bit strange to me

You probably have some version mismatch between S4Vectors, IRanges, and GenomicAlignments. For us to tell we would need to see the output of your sessionInfo() after you've loaded the IRanges package with library(IRanges). Installing R 3.3 and BioC 3.3 from scratch as Dan suggested would solve these issues and is highly recommended anyway since the version of BioC you're using (BioC 3.2) is no more supported.

Probably that means the existing package directory was created by an admin user and was not writable by the user you are running R as.
