install visdat with R version 4.0.2

Hello our hero
Iam trying to install visdat package however the following comment keep happening

Warning in install.packages :

package ‘visdat ’ is not available (for R version 4.0.2)

Possibly just a typo:



still didn't work same comment

visdat is indeed available for R 4.0.2 on CRAN so very likely this is a connectivity issue, R is not being able to connect to the CRAN repository you have selected, these are some things to try.

  • Choose a different CRAN repository, RStudios repository is a good choice ( or you could choose one that is geographically closer to you.
  • Disable secure download setting.
  • Check if your internet connection has traffic restrictions of some kind, like a firewall, proxy server, etc. This is usually the case when you are at work or school.

Thank you but where can I find CRAN repository ??
I did disable secure download method however still didnt work

On the same dialog box where you disabled "secure download", press the "Change" button and select a different CRAN repository.

If this doesn't work then you might be experiencing internet traffic restrictions of some kind.
