Problem with installing R commander

Hello, I have an error message when trying to install R commander as below:

Loading required package: splines
Loading required package: RcmdrMisc
Loading required package: car
Loading required package: carData
Loading required package: sandwich
Error: package or namespace load failed for ‘RcmdrMisc’ in loadNamespace(j <- i[[1L]], c(lib.loc, .libPaths()), versionCheck = vI[[j]]):
there is no package called ‘cli’
Error: package ‘RcmdrMisc’ could not be loaded

Thanks for your help.

Try installing the missing package


Thank you for your reply. But I received an error message when I tried to install "cli".


There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
binary source needs_compilation
cli 3.3.0 3.4.0 TRUE

Do you want to install from sources the package which needs compilation? (Yes/no/cancel) Yes
installing the source package ‘cli’

Thank you for helping me out. Thank you.

The easiest solution would be to answer "no" to this question, you would get a precompiled binary version that is a little older but much easier to install.
If you need to install the latest version from source, then you need to install Xcode in your system (not in R) and the recommended development tools for macOS systems.
