When you use RStudio trought Anaconda it is better to stick with the Anaconda's package manager instead of trying to manually install from CRAN, although, I would recommend not using Anaconda for your R work since RStudio is not officially supported through Anaconda.

Hi, Thank you so much for helping me.

I tried and I found this error in the terminal.

Error Message:

Ok, so Anaconda is not a friendly enough for R and RStudio, right?

Hi, thank you again! I just tried downloading R and RStudio separately, it worked! I thought it would be easier to use just one Anaconda for everything and it was more convenient this way and I was wrong. :joy:
