install rmarkdown

I decided to try renv and now I can't install rmarkdown.

Installing rmarkdown [2.11] ...
	OK [linked cache]

But if I select the knitr button, I am asked to install rmarkdown. Of course this is an endless loop.

But this works

rmarkdown::render(here::here('Explore-Dose-Route.Rmd'), "html_document")

Do you see the error even after restarting the R session? What is the output of packageVersion("rmarkdown")?

If you need to, you can reinstall rmarkdown from CRAN with utils::install.packages("rmarkdown") -- this will bypass the renv cache.

Keven, here is some more information. I can install the packages as you indicate, but RStudio doesn't see it.
