Issues Installing psych package


I recently upgraded R (R 3.4.3 GUI 1.70 El Capitan build) and RStudio
(1.1.383) on my Macbook Pro (10.13.2), but can no longer use my normal
packages - primarily the psych package. I've already tried to remove all my
packages and reinstall them, but I'm still having problems.

Here is the issue I encounter when I try to install psych. Any suggestions?
