I am using Windows, R version 4.0.3. I want to install the library "EBImage" so I entered the following command:

install.packages("BiocManager")
BiocManager::install("EBImage")

The following error is given:

Package which is only available in source form, and may need compilation of C/C++/Fortran: ‘EBImage’
  These will not be installed

I have my C++ compiler installed.

Can Anyone show me the correct way to install the package? Any help is appreciated!

Instead of your C++ compiler installed, you may need Rtools to compile the package from source under Windows

Have you tried BiocManager::install("EBImage", type="source") This will compile by source. If it gives ERROR's please show the ERROR messages.

I proceed to update them and this happened:

Not sure if it could help, but when updating a package, it's better to close all R/RStudio session to avoid potential use of the package (at least under Windows). Then start a R session with an empty environment, or a really new/empty RStudio project. Then update the package, and it should succeed because it is not loaded nor any of its dependencies (except the core packages). HTH
