Welcome to the community!

Try to follow these steps. If these doesn't work, please provide information regarding where these failed.

  1. Check whether tinytex package is installed or not. If not, install it.
  2. Run tinytex:::is_tinytex(). If it's true, great. Otherwise, run tinytex::install_tinytex() and follow the instructions.
  3. Use tinytex:: tlmgr_install to install your required LaTeX package. But pretty often it is able to download while knitting if it is not already installed.

Hope this helps.
