unable to download car

When I attempted to download car the following message appears in my counsel.

install.packages("~/Desktop/R /car_3.0-3.tar.gz", repos = NULL, type = "source")
ERROR: dependency ‘carData’ is not available for package ‘car’

  • removing ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/library/car’
    Warning in install.packages :
    installation of package ‘/Users/colinfyfe/Desktop/R /car_3.0-3.tar.gz’ had non-zero exit status

what is a non-zero exis status?

If you choose to install from a file you have to make sure to install all dependencies beforehand, in this case you are missing the carData package.
Do you have any particular reason for not doing a regular CRAN install?

install.packages("car", dependencies = TRUE)
