Package installation - persistent issues

Hi all,

Really hope you can help me. I cannot install a single package in R - it's been like this for a while and I have tried so many times to fix it and failed, I basically just started using Python instead... anyway, I really need to work with the lme4 package so now is the time to fix...

I have tried/confirmed the following points:

  1. I am logged in as the system admin (on a mac)
  2. I have tried suing sudo R in the console
  3. I have tried setting the lib path, setting the repo, having install dependencies set to true
  4. I have tried manually downloading and moving into library
  5. I have tried to update RStudio

Nothing has worked... can anyone please help me I think I am going mad! I have omitted some of the script because it went over my character limit... I can always post more if that's helpful

This not very informative error message usually appears when you have an issue with your base R installation, some people have reported fixing it by reinstalling the MASS package but if that doesn't help, I would recommend completely removing your R installation including your package library and installing again.

So just in case anyone else has this issue I found out the issue. The packages html index in my mac did not have permission to be updated by Admins - only by the system and RStudio was trying to write to it as me. I changed the permissions and it works now - I have a feeling the change in permissions coincides with an apple update.
