Issues installing car package in 3.5.3

I am trying to install the car package in to R, however it comes up with the follow error code:

Warning in install.packages :
  dependency ‘pbkrtest’ is not available

  There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
    binary source needs_compilation
car  3.0-7  3.0-8             FALSE

installing the source package ‘car’

trying URL ''

ERROR: dependency 'pbkrtest' is not available for package 'car'
* removing 'C:/Users/georg/OneDrive/Documents/R/win-library/3.5/car'
Warning in install.packages :
  installation of package ‘car’ had non-zero exit status

Please can someone advise on how to resolve this issue? I have the latest version of R (3.5.3) and I have tried various things like updating packages, installing pbkrtest, but none of these options work. It seems that pbkrtest isn't available in the latest version of R.


The most recent version of R is actually 4.0.0. And it appears that the pbrktest package requires R 3.6.0 or higher:

You can download the most recent version of R here:
