Issue installing / accessing tidyverse

I've been trying to run tidyverse on RStudio version 1.2.5033 on Mac. I ran the install packages command for tidyverse, which says the package is downloaded, but when I open a new markdown to access it through library(), I get the following error:

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’: .onLoad failed in loadNamespace() for 'broom', details: call: loadNamespace(name) error: there is no package called ‘backports’

I've tried installing again on a clean session, but am continuously getting the error. Any ideas or help getting tidyverse loaded would be appreciated! Thanks!

Try install.packages("backports") first
