Unable to install randomForrest on R3.5.1


#1

Hi there,

I'm quit new a R and Rstudio. This week I was in need to update my R version, and I have updated R from 3.2.3. to version 3.5.1. I did have to reinstall several packages, not having any problems. Reinstalling randomForrest resulted in: Warning message:
package ‘randomForrest’ is not available (for R version 3.5.1)

Is there a alternative installing randomForrest on R3.5.1?

Thanks,

Antoin

Thats because you should have installed randomForest and not randomForrest. Please remove the extra r in randomForest.

Hi Timesaver, thanks for your advise. The reason that 'randomForest' is not available for R3.5.1 is not the typo.

The first message I receive after executing code is:
1 package is needed for this model and is not installed. (randomForrest). Would you like to try to install it now?
1: yes
2: no

After a attempt to install I get
Warning in install.packages :
package ‘randomforrest’ is not available (for R version 3.5.1)

The package randomForest 4.6-14 is installed in R3.5.1.

I'm confused

What would be most helpful here would be if you can copy and paste the exact console output you get when you answer 1 to the “would you like to install” question. With R installation messages, it’s difficult to guess what went wrong just from the final message — it’s necessary to see all the details. Plus, if you copy and paste it will clear up confusion about typos! :grin:
