I am drowning in updating packages

I am trying to install the correct packages, but I am hitting a wall. I tried to install the package 'rvest', but for that package, it states it needs the package 'lifecycle' and an updated package 'rlang'. Just executing the install.packages() function does not help me anything. I have already redownloaded r and r studio. Now I am at a point where for every package I try to install it states "... had non-zero exit status". Does anyone have good advice because I am lost.

Hi, welcome to the forum.

Have a look at the FAQ for general posting hints.

It is likely to help us if you post some of the error messages but as a beginning restart R and Rstudio.
Then try :.


This should install the updated package. If that works try:


If that's okay , retry installing rvast.
