Starting out with R, cannot install tidyverse

I am just using RStudio for the first time and I get this error message when using


Not sure if I should be using the </> to enter error messages?

  error 1 in extracting from zip file
Warning in install.packages :
  cannot open compressed file 'askpass/DESCRIPTION', probable reason 'No such file or directory'
Error in install.packages : cannot open the connection
> library(tidyverse)
Error in library(tidyverse) : there is no package called ‘tidyverse’

Please could I get advice on the next step as I have probably missed out a crucial step somewhere. Also please let me know if clarification is required.
Many thanks,

It looks like you need the package *askpass" and it is not installing automatically.



and retry installing tidyverse.
