I believe your problem is that you already have some packages loaded in that R session. Try closing all R sessions you may have open on your computer, open a new R session and don't load any packages before calling source("").

However, you are also running an outdated R and Bioconductor version - BioC version 3.4 just came out, so the package you're trying to load is a year out of date. You really should install R 3.3.1 then BioC 3.4 to get the most updated annotations in the package.
