Unable to install any packages in R/RStudio (on opensuse 42.2 with everything "up to date")

Hi!
I installed R and RStudio only a few days ago and yesterday I tried for the first time to install packages. I didn't work and I haven't been able to find out why.

The package install error message is the "non-zero status", for the package and all its dependencies.

My OS is OpenSuse LEAP 42.2, can't change that, it's a job issue.
Did an update of all repos and got this message:

Some of the repositories have not been refreshed because of an error.

Any idea?
I'm desperate :frowning:

Thanks

Could you tell us how are you trying to install packages and the whole y error message you are getting? So far you are not giving us enough information to help you.

I try to install via RStudio -> "Install packages" by selecting the specific package from the list.

The "Install from" selection list contains only "Repository (CRAN)"
"Install to Library" is set to "‘/home/alligator/R/x86_64-suse-linux-gnu-library/3.6/Default’"

I could now paste the whole log, but it's far too long and repetitive for each dependency package, but it ends in this (which is what comes if I try to install without the dependencies):

Warning in install.packages :
  installation of package ‘rio’ had non-zero exit status
ERROR: dependencies ‘pbkrtest’, ‘quantreg’, ‘maptools’, ‘rio’, ‘lme4’ are not available for package ‘car’
* removing ‘/home/alligator/R/x86_64-suse-linux-gnu-library/3.6/car’
Warning in install.packages :
  installation of package ‘car’ had non-zero exit status.

You are omitting the important parts, please post the whole error message

Sorry, I'm no pro in this

It doesn't help to try to install the named dependencies, as this resulkts in a similar error.

You have to try this with dependencies set to TRUE, and post the whole error message so we can identify which dependency is causing the issue

It seems like you have an incompatible or old version of gcc installed in your system, try updating or reinstalling gcc I can't give you any specific command since I don't have experience with opensuse

I did that and some research on what version of gcc is needed.Only found a reference that it must be > 4 and I have gcc version 4.8.x
I also checked the PATH variables, which seem to be ok

Now I have gcc 6.1.1 20160707 installed and set the pointer to it (so that's what appears if I check the version of gcc in the terminal.)

Still not able to install any packages in RStudio.
I'm desperate because I need this to work somehow. Is there a posiibility to use RsTudio online, on a server?

Yes, you can use RStudio Cloud for free, but have in minde that it has a 1GB RAM memory limit so you can't do nothing memory intensive.

It's for Statistics 101, I don't think I will need that much memory at the beginning. Until I find a solution for the problem.

Thanks very much for your help!
