The XML problem is probably because you are missing system dependencies:
Try this at the unix command line:

sudo apt-get install -y libcurl-dev libxml2-dev

Then try installing XML again. 
The other package failures you saw were probably because XML was not installed. 

The "6: installed directory not writable, cannot update packages" is just a warning and you can ignore it.
It's talking about core R packages which are typically installed in a directory that ordinary users can't
write to. If you want, you can run biocLite() as root to update those packages.
