Failing to install RSQLite

Hello,
I am trying to install RSQLite but for some reason, it's not loading, for the 6th time now I keep on getting this:
install.packages("RSQLite")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/Helper/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/3.6/RSQLite_2.2.0.zip'
Content type 'application/zip' length 2275191 bytes (2.2 MB)
downloaded 2.2 MB

package ‘RSQLite’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
Error in install.packages : ERROR: failed to lock directory ‘C:\Users\Helper\Documents\R\win-library\3.6’ for modifying
Try removing ‘C:\Users\Helper\Documents\R\win-library\3.6/00LOCK’

Where am I missing it?, Please assist

This doesn't seem related to RStudio Cloud so I'm changing the category.
About your problem, simply follow the instructions on the error message and delete that file

Apologies for posting on the wrong platform, however your response is however greatly appreciated, would you be able to advise on the command i can use to remove this if possible. Thanks much!

Simply use the Windows file explorer, look for the file and press delete. This would be way easier than do it from R or from the terminal.
