I am getting error while installing packages

Installing package into ‘C:/Users/shihab's pc/Documents/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
also installing the dependencies ‘glue’, ‘rlang’

There is a binary version available but the source version
is later:
binary source needs_compilation
lifecycle 0.1.0 0.2.0 FALSE

package ‘glue’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
package ‘rlang’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded binary packages are in
C:\Users\shihab's pc\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpUVSEoP\downloaded_packages

R doesn't like empty spaces on Windows user names, try installing on the system level library instead (you need to run RStudio as administrator for this).

# Change the path accordingly with your own R version
install.packages("lifecycle", lib = "C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-3.6.3\\library")
