I am trying to install the phyloseq package from Bioconductor in my RStudio, but always shows the error message "installation path not writable: boot". May someone give me some help with that?

I have used the following command to install the package in RStudio:

if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("phyloseq")

By the end, the error message is shown: "installation path not writable: boot"

Thank you all!

This sounds like a warning and not an error. Can you load the package

library(phyloseq)


?

This is not about 'phyloseq' but about package 'boot' that comes with R and, depending on your installation, may require admin permissions to update. Try running R with 'sudo' or 'as admin' or whatever necessary on your OS; you should be able to update package 'boot' and the message should disappear in ordinary R sessions...
