R Studio: Unable to Import Excel Files

I can not seem to upload the Excel File I need. The program allows me an option to upload the read excel requirement through a textbox, but however it shows the below message that I have copied:

package 'readxl' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
Warning: cannot remove prior installation of package 'readxl'
The downloaded binary packages are in C:\Users\Christine\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpAX27xH\downloaded_packages

Would anyone have any clue why this happened? Is this because the wrong R Studio was downloaded? Windows XP version is the program that I have.

Did you try restarting R and then running the install.package() command? On Windows, loaded package DLLs won't be unloaded until you restart R. If the package is already loaded it won't update.

I did yes. I was able to select "import" but received the screen below. I am attempting to upload the attached file.
