Hi all, I tried posting on Stack Overflow but no one seems to know how to resolve this. I've seen this Q a few times and no answers ever logged. Please help!
I can't seem to knit any markdown Rmd files to html or pdf. This happened all of a sudden and on Rmds I've used successfully for years. I tried downloading from repos, and the same problem exists. It seems to be on my computer but not on colleagues that download repos, so very strange. I updated yaml, rmarkdown, knitr packges, reinstalled new versions of Rstudio, R and still no solution.
When I try to knit, I get a prompt saying "Install Required Package: Rendering R Markdown documents requires and updated version of the rmarkdown pakage. Install now?". If I click no, everything halts. If I click yes, I get the following error immediately:
Fatal error: creating temporary file for '-e' failed
I have rmarkdown package v. 1.1 installed, and I uninstalled and reinstalled it, yet I still get this prompt. No clue what's happening or why this would start out of nowhere. I tried pulling from repo and running on a new computer and it will knit so it seems like it isn't in what is coded, but perhaps something loaded/not...? At a loss
Thank you for any help!
