Default RepeatMasker track UCSC in R

Hi,

I have problems loading the repeatmasker track from UCSC into R. I try to use the makeFeatureDbFromUCSC function from the GenomicFeatures package. The R code and the corresponding error message is below.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there a problem with the track?

Thank you very much!

input:

library(GenomicFeatures)

repdb <- makeFeatureDbFromUCSC(genome= "hg19", track="rmsk", table="rmsk", chromCol="genoName", chromStartCol="genoStart", chromEndCol="genoEnd")



output:

Download the rmsk table ...
