language R
version.string R version 3.6.1 (2019-07-05)
nickname Action of the Toes
but every time I try to knit the file, it asks me to update rmarkdown. I update the files but I cannot knit the files because it asks me again. To update. I updated all packages but still does not work. Any suggestions as to what may be happening. I would appreciate your help

If you keep getting asked to update then the update process has not been successful as you think, please post the complete console output you get when you try to update the packages.

Have in mind that you are using a very old R version so it is very likely that latest package versions are going to require compilation. Make sure you have the required development tools installed in your system or update to the latest R version so you can get access to precompiled binaries.

I downloaded the latest version from RStudio 3.6.1 after uninstalling R.

I think you are a little confused, 3.6.1 is your R version, which is quite old, the latest version is 4.1.2 and you can download it from CRAN


RStudio is an IDE for the R programming language but it has its own version, being the latest one 2022.02.0+443
