Trouble downloading tidyverse



After installing the tidyverse, when I type library(tidyverse), I get the following error message:

Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘tidyverse’ in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]):
 there is no package called ‘rlang’

Does anyone know why this might be and how I can get rid of it? I just downloaded R 3.4.3, so I know that’s not the issue.


try downloading rlang separately prior to installing tidyverse:



This worked once I tried it after restarting R. It didn’t work before I restarted R. Thanks!
