Unable to install packages...


I'm a system administrator with no knowledge of RStudio. Users have no permissions to install packages, so they ask me to do it for them.

With the command install.packages("rsample") i should be able to install RSample. However i get the output below. What am i doing wrong here?

Installing package into ‘P:/R Studio’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
binary source needs_compilation
rsample 0.1.1 1.1.1 FALSE

If installing from source doesn't work the first time, choose n the next time for the binary source. Most folk who use R don't want to spend their time dealing with a compilation chain.


Thanks for your answer. How exactly do i choose n?

Is there a phrase like this? "Do you wnat to install ...... (Yes/no/cancel)" Example

install.package Message is something like “a binary version is available but a source version is later. Do you want to install from source? Y/n”
