I have recently updated both R and RStudio to the latest versions (R 4.3.1 and RStudio 2023.06.2+561) on my Intel MacBook Pro running Mac OS 11.7.8 (Big Sur). When I try to update the packages that need updating, I get the message that they have been downloaded:
The downloaded binary packages are in /var/folders/9g/_qdt18fj55x5pgzfz2wnjjyr0000gr/T//RtmpSXgek5/downloaded_packages
… but they have not actually updated, because when I check for updates again, it says all the same packages need updating. Could it be that something is going wrong with compiling the binaries?
I tried manually deleting and reinstalling those packages with exactly the same result. I suppose it is possible that I need to update my operating system, but I tend to avoid this due to so many other things breaking.
