Using RStudio trough Anaconda is not officially supported so it doesn't offer a seamless experience. It is very common to have problems installing packages from CRAN on this scenario, when using Anaconda is safer to stick with installing packages using conda commands or the Anaconda Navigator graphical interface.

Although, if you are going to be using more R than Python I would strongly recommend installing R and RStudio as stand alone versions instead of the Anaconda versions.

It seems that the 'lifecycle' package is missing from your R environment. This package is a dependency for several other packages, including broom, tidyselect, scales, forcats, hms, pillar, reprex, rvest, dbplyr, dtplyr, ggplot2, and googledrive.

You can try installing the 'lifecycle' package first, and then re-run the command to install the tidyverse package.

You can install the 'lifecycle' package by running the following command:

install.packages("lifecycle")

If that doesn't work, you can also try installing the package directly from CRAN.

install.packages("lifecycle", repos = "https://cran.r-project.org")

Make sure that you have internet connection while running the above command and you have the administrator permission to install packages.

Also, it's worth checking that you have the most recent version of R and that your R environment is properly configured.
