Do you want to install from sources the package which needs compilation? (Yes/no/cancel)

I have the latest version of R studio and still receiving this error. I already have binary version, but it does not include functions that i need.

This is the error message:

There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
binary source needs_compilation
stratEst 0.1.2 1.1.4 TRUE

Any insight as to why these issues are occurring would be super appreciated!! Thanks!

While you have the latest version of RStudio (2022.07.1+554), you have a very old version of R itself. R is currently at 4.2.1 and you have 3.5. CRAN has binaries of the latest versions of packages, including version 1.1.4 of stratEst, for R 4.1 and 4.2. I strongly suggest you update R. It will make it much easier to install and update packages.

Thank you. It worked.
