error in package installation

Hi guys,

i am new to R and i face some problems while installing packages, hope you guys can assist. While installing package haven and lubridate, i face the following warning/error;

packagelocation <- "G:/ Research/R libraries" 
#install.packages("haven", lib = packagelocation)
#install.packages("lubridate", lib = packagelocation)

library("haven", lib.loc = packagelocation)         
Error in library("haven", lib.loc = packagelocation) : 
  there is no package called ‘haven’

library("tidyverse", lib.loc =  packagelocation)  
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
 there is no package called ‘lubridate’
In addition: Warning message:
package ‘tidyverse’ was built under R version 3.5.2 

Can anyone tell me how to sort this?

Thank you.

Is this the exact code that you are using for installing the packages?
If so, you have an extra space in the path "G:/ Research/R libraries" and the install commands are commented with #, so, they have not been executed.
