issues downloading packages

Hi everyone,

I recently downloaded Version 1.4.1717 on my new computer and I am having issues downloading package. More specifically, when I go to Tools > instal packages it gives the following message. However, when I press yes nothing happens and the tab remains open. Is there any way to fix this?



R and RStudio at some extent have problems with cloud synced folders, I would recommend setting your package library in a non synced folder.

You can change the default library folder by setting your R_LIBS_SITE environmental variable on a .Reviron or .Rprofile file, for example:

# In a .Renviron file you can set it by adding a line similar to this one, with your desired folder path 
R_LIBS_SITE="C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-4.1.0\\library"
