Hi! I have problems when I am trying to update some packages such as "devtools", "nlme", "rstan", "rstanarm" and "stringi".
When I am trying to update, always appear this message. - in this case with stringi -
install.packages("stringi") There is a binary version available but the source version is later: binary source needs_compilation stringi 1.4.4 1.4.6 TRUE installing the source package ‘stringi’ trying URL 'https://cran.rstudio.com/src/contrib/stringi_1.4.6.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 7284354 bytes (6.9 MB) downloaded 6.9 MB * installing *source* package 'stringi' ... ** package 'stringi' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked ERROR: cannot remove earlier installation, is it in use? * removing 'C:/Users/alim/Documents/R/R-3.6.1/library/stringi' * restoring previous 'C:/Users/alim/Documents/R/R-3.6.1/library/stringi' Warning in file.copy(lp, dirname(pkgdir), recursive = TRUE, copy.date = TRUE) : problema al copiar C:\Users\alim\Documents\R\R-3.6.1\library\00LOCK-stringi\stringi\libs\icudt61l.dat a C:\Users\alim\Documents\R\R-3.6.1\library\stringi\libs\icudt61l.dat: Invalid argument Warning in file.copy(lp, dirname(pkgdir), recursive = TRUE, copy.date = TRUE) : problema al copiar C:\Users\alim\Documents\R\R-3.6.1\library\00LOCK-stringi\stringi\libs\x64\stringi.dll a C:\Users\alim\Documents\R\R-3.6.1\library\stringi\libs\x64\stringi.dll: Permission denied Warning in install.packages : installation of package ‘stringi’ had non-zero exit status The downloaded source packages are in ‘C:\Users\alim\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp0M9VF9\downloaded_packages’
I tried everthing, removing the 00LOCK folder, removing the package and reinstalling it, But I obtain the same result.
Did I something wrong? There is something that I missed? How can I interpret the error?
