I am new into R, before I worked a lot with Python and saw the advantages of using environments in projects, now I would like to use "renv" in R, but I ran into some problems:
It starts with installing a package, for example install.packages("dplyr"), that works for me.
After initializing the environment with renv::init(), all seems to work as well.
Now I wanted to see, how to add a package to this empty environment. When I try to install again, using install.packages("dplyr"), I am getting the following message:
Error: package 'dplyr' is not available
In addition: Warning messages:
1: could not retrieve available packages for url "https://cran.rstudio.com/src/contrib"
2: could not retrieve available packages for url "https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/4.0"
3: curl: (28) Connection timed out after 20000 milliseconds
Have someone faced similar problems?
I have read some posts and tried out different things, but I can not solve this anyways.
Using getOption("download.file.method") has the output "wininet".
After deactivating renv, all works fine.
