Cannot install R packages

Hi I have a problem installing any package in RStudio.

The error I get:
'Error in download.file(url, destfile, method, mode = "wb", ...) :
cannot open URL ''
Warning in install.packages :
download of package ‘tidyverse’ failed'

So I am fairly new to R, I had to reinstall it because some sort of network/connection issue to R servers. And after wiping all previous libraries and uninstalling both R and RStudio, I cannot install packages at all.

I have tried several CRAN mirrors, disabled secure download method for HTTP, reinstalled started new sessions, ran 'install.packages("tidyverse", dependencies = TRUE)' multiple times without any luck.

System Information:

  • RStudio Edition: Desktop
  • RStudio Version: 2023.06.2+561
  • OS Version: Windows 11
  • R Version: 4.3.1

Thank you in advance!

outside of R, can you open the URL ?

When you open R-GUI and not R-studio, you can go to packages -- > install packages, after choosing the mirror you can choose the package to install. Try installing like this, if it doesn't work please reply with the error message.
