Hello, I am new to using R and RStudio. I am taking a class for my University Degree and for some reason, when I try to load the tidyverse, it keeps throwing an error
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’:
.onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'broom', details:
error: there is no package called ‘backports’
I have looked at other problems that seems similar but I am not sure what to do. I tried to see if I could install the 'backports' package because I saw other people do similar things but all I got was
Error in install.packages : object 'backports' not found
I am too scared to uninstall anything yet and I am also not exactly sure how to do it either.
I also just updated several packages and I still got the same error.
