Problem installing dplyr package

Hi @Jadwiga! Welcome!

I think helpers are going to need some more information in order to help you figure this out. To start:

  • Do you have the same problem when you try to install from R, outside of RStudio? (If you’re not sure of the difference, see: Differentiating R from RStudio)
  • Do any other messages print to the console after the ones you posted? If so, can you please paste them here?
  • When you say nothing happens, do you mean that the last line of the console does not have a prompt (>)? What are you expecting to see happen?

Just in case: sometimes people get confused because package installation is so quick if you’re on a system where R was able to install an available binary (pre-compiled) version of the package. If a new line with a prompt appears, then package installation has finished. To use the package, you need to load it using library("dplyr").
