Problem installing palmerpenguins package

Warning in install.packages :
unable to access index for repository
cannot open URL ''


The RStudio mirror of the CRAN repo is usually pretty reliable, and reachable by network as I write. It might have been down temporarily (Saturday night is common for maintenance outages everywhere). Try again, and if there’s still difficulty, we can help you change the repo.

This seems like 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.
