Can anybody help me rectify the mistakes I'm doing in this r code in Blogdown

Congratulations! Your new Hugo site is created in C:\Users\MOHANKRISHNA\Documents\Sample\kripal\gcushen\hugo-academic.

Just a few more steps and you're ready to go:

1. Download a theme into the same-named folder.
   Choose a theme from https://themes.gohugo.io/ or
   create your own with the "hugo new theme <THEMENAME>" command.
2. Perhaps you want to add some content. You can add single files
   with "hugo new <SECTIONNAME>\<FILENAME>.<FORMAT>".
3. Start the built-in live server via "hugo server".

Visit https://gohugo.io/ for quickstart guide and full documentation.

Know that you need Blogdown >= 0.55 - I don't know your version but it may be related. Can you check ?

Also, you may be interested in this resources because there was a bug with blogdown and academic teams

Slides with a command for academic theme

new_site(theme = "gcushen/hugo-academic", 
         sample = TRUE, 
         theme_example = TRUE, 
         empty_dirs = TRUE,
         to_yaml = TRUE)
