Markdown error and warning in knitting out document

I am having issues running Rmarkdown and Project, and its associated output.

title: "Untitled"
author: "Oluwadare, Margaret"
date: "August 5, 2020"
output: html_document

```{r setup, include=FALSE}
knitr::opts_chunk$set(echo = TRUE)

## R Markdown

This is an R Markdown document. Markdown is a simple formatting syntax for authoring HTML, PDF, and MS Word documents. For more details on using R Markdown see <>.

When you click the **Knit** button a document will be generated that includes both contents as well as the output of any embedded R code chunks within the document. You can embed an R code chunk like this:

```{r cars}

## Including Plots

You can also embed plots, for example:

```{r pressure, echo=FALSE}

Note that the `echo = FALSE` parameter was added to the code chunk to prevent printing of the R code that generated the plot.

it gives me the following warning messages.

Also when I tried to use reprex() to report the above issues I got an error message as follows:

Rendering reprex...
Error: callr subprocess failed: <text>:18:68: unexpected symbol

Type .Last.error.trace to see where the error occured


This challenge has been on since I updated R, Rstudio, and all the packages. I had to do package update to be sure the packages on my Rstudio are not outdated. But still, the challenge persists. Below are my session information and version details:

Based on the example given, it's not totally clear to me what is in your R Markdown doc and what isn't, but it appears that there's a call to reprex() in the doc.

I don't think reprex() is intended for an R Markdown doc.

When I tried adding a simple one, I wasn't able to replicate your error message, but my R Markdown doc didn't fully knit.

That all being said, is there a backtick/gravemark (this thing -> "`'")
at the top of your YAML header?

When I add that before the topmost --- I am able to replicate the [WARNING] This document format requires a nonempty <title> element. message.
I'd remove that and retry.


I tried to use replex() so i can post the sample code here but the replex() command produced and error message instage. Also the back tic (`) was to make my code reproducible here, i guess it didn't come out clean as it should.

I want to make an Rmarkdown doc but it keeps giving me the warning as described in my post and then produce a blank html or pdf document.


Hello! I've also encountered this problem. Did you find any solution for it?
Thank youuu ^^
