after installing tidyverse, only the tidyr and tidyselect libraries are available to load

After install.packages("tidyverse"), the source packages were downloaded fine. However, when I'm trying starting to type in "library(tidy)" to load the library, only tidyr and tidyselect popup as options; tidyverse doesn't pop up as an option. And when I type in "library(tidyverse)" anyway, I get the error below.

Error in library(tidyverse) : there is no package called ‘tidyverse’

Thanks in advance!

What prints to the console when you do install.packages("tidyverse") ?

tidyverse has not been successfully installed because you have a lot of outdated packages, you can try updating them first with this command but since you are using a very old version of R very likely you are going to get into more installation issues, my advice, update R first, then your packages and then try to install tidyverse.

update.packages(repos='', ask=FALSE, checkBuilt=TRUE)

There are binary versions available but the
source versions are later:

ellipsis 0.1.0 0.3.0 TRUE
processx 3.3.0 3.4.1 TRUE
vctrs 0.1.0 0.2.2 TRUE
callr 3.2.0 3.4.1 FALSE
dplyr 0.8.4 TRUE

hms 0.4.2 0.5.3 FALSE
purrr 0.3.2 0.3.3 TRUE
reprex 0.2.1 0.3.0 FALSE
rlang 0.3.4 0.4.4 TRUE

tidyr 0.8.3 1.0.2 TRUE
xml2 1.2.0 1.2.2 TRUE
tidyverse 1.2.1 1.3.0 FALSE

You haven't updated R or used the command I gave you, if you keep doing the same thing without changing a thing you are going to keep getting the same result.
