Warning in install.packages : il pacchetto ‘gbif’ is not available for this version of R

Good morning, I am trying to install on rstudio the package “gbif” but the program tells me that it is not available for my version, I have tried to install the new version of rstudio but it keeps giving me this error, moreover, I have followed the advice already given to other users but it keeps not working.

Did you mean the rgbif package?

install.packages("rgbif")

yes, I meant to say rgbif

@MarilenarStudio Could you please re-run install.packages("rgbif") in the R console and then copy-paste the full error message to this thread? Also, could you also run getOption("repos") and sessionInfo() and copy-paste the output? It will be helpful to know which CRAN mirror you are downloading from, the version of R, and the operating system.

@MarilenarStudio this part of the error message strongly suggests that you typed install.packages("gbif") instead of install.packages("rgbif"). Looking at the list of all CRAN packages, there is no package named "gbif". But as @Gabor noted above, there is a package named "rgbif". A screenshot from the CRAN website:

I have a very similar setup to you: Windows 11 with R 4.3.3. I get the same error message as you when I run install.packages("gbif"), but I am able to install {rgbif} with install.packages("rgbif")
