Hello all,

I have been having issues installing packages that I really need to use. Basically, I cannot download either Phyloseq or dada2 and I believe it's because I don't have GenomeInfoDbData. But at the same time, I cannot install GenomeInfoDbData because I can't seem to update the dependencies ("fansi" in my case is causing the problems). Which leads me to think I've incorrectly installed Rtools, but I followed the instructions and if i fun devtools::find_rtools(), the output is always TRUE. However, when I follow the installation guide and try to install jslonlite by source, I get an error.

I apologise if this isn't really a BioConductor problem, but I've tried very hard to solve my issue, and still can't figure it out. I really need access to the packages and I'm not sure what else to do. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Did you notice this message:?

To me it seems you are running R with insufficient rights... and therefore packages cannot be installed in the C:/Program Files/.. directory.

Hello Guido,

Thanks for replying. I did read about insufficient rights when it comes to installing packages and how that can mess things up. But, for example, even if I specify the installation to my user library, it still doesn't work:

> install.packages("fansi", lib = "C:/Users/ymt89/OneDrive/Documents/R/win-library/4.0")

There is a binary version available but the source version is later:
binary source needs_compilation
fansi  0.5.0  1.0.2              TRUE

I'm worried by the repeated line with & was unexpected at this time.

When you're installing a source package you'd expect the line after the "downloaded XX KB" to start with "* installing \*source\* package .."

I've no idea where the message you're seeing is coming from, but it looks wrong to me and is probably the root of your issues.

Hello Mike,

Thanks for your reply. I tried to troubleshoot this with a colleague yesterday to no avail. I've uninstalled and reinstalled R, RStudio and Rtools, and it solved nothing. I get & was unexpected at this time. for everything I try to install by source. I think the issue is that there is something wrong with my laptop, which I've had several issues with over the couple of years. Sometime last year, it decided it no longer wanted to run .cmd files? I tried to install a programme using a batch file and it just wouldn't work. The command prompt window will appear and reappear immediately. So again, I think this is not allowing Rtools to function correctly? While it's a pain, I hope that is the issue (because I've since been able to install Phyloseq and dada2 without any issues on 2 other laptops) because if it isn't, I still have no idea what is causing the problem on this laptop.
