Problems to install psych library

Hi everyone,

I am trying to install psych package in RStudio . As I have seen in a previous topic about the same problem I have tried to install from R with administrative privilege, but I get the same error message:

install.packages("psych")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/lopez/OneDrive/Documentos/R/win-library/3.6’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning: dependency ‘mnormt’ is not available

package ‘psych’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded binary packages are in
C:\Users\lopez\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp2HKUto\downloaded_packages

library(psych)
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘psych’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
there is no package called ‘mnormt’
Además: Warning message:
package ‘psych’ was built under R version 3.6.3

Please help.

You are missing this dependency, it is not getting installed since mnormt requires R >= 4.0.0 so you need to update your R version to be able to install this package.
