Installation of package ‘tidybayes’ had non-zero exit status

Hi Everyone

I'm trying to install the package tidybayes, but it is throwing the error message:

In R CMD INSTALL
Warning in install.packages :
installation of package ‘tidybayes’ had non-zero exit status

When I attempt to install directly from github with:

devtools::install_github("mjskay/tidybayes")

It also fails.
I was wondering if anyone knew how to install this package?
I'm operating on windows, R version 3.5.3 if that helps.

Thanks in advance.

Could you supply all of the output produced by the install command? There is probably information there about the problem.

The first error I see is Error : object 'across' is not exported by 'namespace:dplyr'. Try updating your dplyr. I believe the across function is rather new.
Updating everything to the latest version might be the best solution if updating just dplyr is not enough.

Sure, here is all the output:

There is a binary version available but the source version is later:

The downloaded source packages are in
‘C:\Users\h\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpYL87Uz\downloaded_packages’

It seems it is having a problem loading related packages also, but I'm not experienced enough to know how to solve it.

I updated all R packages and it has worked now.

Thanks for your help.
