I'm running into issues with deploying my app to my server. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it fails. This problem began 4 days ago.
The current issue appears to be a problem with a package I am installing from GitHub. However, I am able to install the package locally, and also successfully able to install it remotely on the server that I have Posit Connect installed on.
This is the line of code that is currently causing the failure (only when publishing the app to the server through RStudio, not when installing the package locally or on the server).
devtools::install_github("melissagwolf/semPlot", ref = "packrat_errors")
Here is the log:

However, I was able to successfully publish this exact same shiny app last night, although it took approximately 15 hours to successfully load. What could the problem be? How can I resolve this?
