Trouble installing lifecycle package on R studio

I have been having trouble installing lifecyle package on my R Studio IDE. I keep getting this error.

Error in loadNamespace(i, c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[i]]) :
namespace 'rlang' 0.4.11 is being loaded, but >= 1.0.6 is required
Calls: ... withCallingHandlers -> loadNamespace -> namespaceImport -> loadNamespace
Execution halted
ERROR: lazy loading failed for package 'lifecycle'

What should I do to resolve it?

This is asking you to update the rlang package. Try resetting your R session (to make sure rlangis not already loaded) and updating rlang with this command:


Then you can try installing lifecycle again.

If you get any error message while installing rlang please post it here so we can take a look at what is going on.

Note: RStudio is not related to your situation since it is just an IDE for the R programming language and it has no direct effect on your R package library. That is why I changed your topic's category.

Thank you for your help.
