Hi! I am a new user of R, and I have been having the same problem while installing packages.
I am trying to install the following package:
Then have this Error:
install.packages("devtools") WARNING: Rtools is required to build R packages but is not currently installed. Please download and install the appropriate version of Rtools before proceeding: https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/Rtools/ Installing package into ‘C:/Users/roman/AppData/Local/R/win-library/4.2’ (as ‘lib’ is unspecified) trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/windows/contrib/4.2/devtools_2.4.3.zip' Content type 'application/zip' length 422901 bytes (412 KB) downloaded 412 KB package ‘devtools’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked The downloaded binary packages are in C:\Users\roman\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp0YlOid\downloaded_packages Error in nchar(homeDir) : invalid multibyte string, element 1
The last line keeps appearing with everything I want to install. I tried re-instaling everything, but the problem persists.
I am using Windows 11. My R Version is 4.2.1 and my Rstudio version is RStudio Desktop 2022.02.3+492
My lib.path is :
.libPaths()  "C:/Users/roman/AppData/Local/R/win-library/4.2" "C:/Program Files/R/R-4.2.1/library"
So it is not a problem with non-ASCII character is in my home directory path, as this post suggests: Hello there. I'm having a error message that I can't understand.
I will appreciate any help. Thank you very much
