A student couldn't install the
digest package -- the error message pointed to this file not existing:
My questions are:
Where do I report this?
What is the proper protocol for installing a package when
a) Try a different mirror:
`install.packages("digest", repo = "https://cran.revolutionanalytics.com/")`
If so, are there go-to mirrors that are known to be more stable?
b) Download the tar.gz and install as such:
`install.packages("~/Downloads/digest_0.6.14.tgz", repos = NULL, type="source")`
c) Use R CMD INSTALL in the terminal? (Does this require additional downloads? I have so much stuff installed that I don't know what works for students and what doesn't.)
d) Something else?
