Your error message is telling you that ggplot2 is not being installed because rlang is not being installed correctly.

You can first try simply running:


If this fails it may be because you do not have the necessary tools to build R packages from source. If this is the case, you will need to install RTools and then once that is done, re-run the installation of rlang again after restarting your R session.


thank you very much, you help me to solve this problem
