Follow the advice they give you by trying to remove the 00LOCK-TIDYR file

You won't be able to install until it is removed. It is from a previous unfinished installation

Also next time, please include information as text and not image. It will be easier to read and trying to reproduce. Thanks.

Thanks. How exactly would I remove the 00LOCK-TIDYR file? Should I delete tidyr or the tidyverse packages and then reinstall?

just delete the file that is indicated in the message. Follow the path.
I can't copy paste because you posted an image, but the path of the file to delete is in the image.
