Issue with installation and loading of tidyverse

tidyverse

#1

Hi All,

I am new to R and was trying to install "tidyverse", however, it throws an error and I am not sure what can be done here. Please help out.

Below are log details -

install.packages("tidyverse", dependencies=TRUE)

#2

try installing psych. It should have been installed at first but it may have been an issue.

  1. Restart session to have a clean one
  2. install.packages("psych")

Then try again library(tidyverse)
