i am unable to install this package. no clue how should i proceed further

What happens if you install gtools then restart RStudio?

It might be good to update R. Your 3.6.1 version is from July 2019. Hopefully that will fix it.

The latest release is 4.0.1.

do i need to uninstall the current one

No, just download it. You'll need to reinstall the packages though.

i think its a problem with my r studio version which is 3.6.1.
can i upgrade it without uninstalling it

i couldnt even install it.

what should i do now?

It might be that or the version of R. The page on CRAN doesn't mention anything though.

I can't remember, but I think you can install both without uninstalling, but you might need to reinstall the packages.
