I am having a problem that was mentioned before by Lomas on 2018-05-29. Since it is the exact same problem, I am reproducing the way it was posed before:
I installed the tidyverse package (install.packages("tidyverse")) but when I want to load it (library(tidyverse)) I get an error saying that some package is missing, a new one every time. I have tried installing those packages one by one but I am on the 5th one now and keep getting a new, similar error saying that a new package isn´t installed. So far: ‘plyr’, ‘psych’, ‘gtable’, ‘reshape2’, ‘scales’... in that order... I quit trying at this point thinking that there must be some kind of problem.
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
there is no package called ‘scales’
It is incredibly frustrating because R was working just fine, and then suddenly it failed to load tidyverse, ggplot2 and dplyr. I've updated all the packages. I've installed Rtools. These were all suggestions that were made. But nothing has worked. Any help?
