I can install lubridate in R but i can not in Rstudio... I am newby

Hi guys. I am really newby into the programming world and few days ago I installed R and Rstudio. I wanted install tidyverse and then lubridate. Rstudio failled In the second action as you can see...

However I did the same in R and results were Ok

I hope anybody can help me. Thanks so much.

Check to see if you have the directory and file shown on the next-to-last line.

Perhaps lubridate hasn't been actually installed yet.

First type install.packages("lubridate") like you did with tidyverse in the screenshot you shared.

Then try library(lubridate) again.


Thanks so much, but the directory is the same.

Thanks for the sugestion, but I can not fix it.

This indicates that the process user lacks write privileges. I've heard that running as an administrator can fix this, but my own experience with Windows is so long ago that I have no first-hand experience.

Your installation of the lubridatepackage is corrupted, try manually deleting the package (the whole folder) and installing again.
