Hi, I am new to R and trying to download swirl.
I have read past issues with swirl but nothing seems to help my specific issue. The problem is deleting the LOCK. I can find it and delete it, but then R still thinks its not downloaded. If I run it again, the LOCK comes back. IDK if that is my only problem haha, but that is the one that I see currently. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
This is what I am getting
