Keep on getting message errors when trying to install and load packages 2

PaulJr
Dear all,

Is it normal for R to store installed packages in paths like the following?

C:\Users\PaulBernal\AppData\Local\Temp\RtmpgXA5VS\downloaded_packages

Regards,

Paul

Yes. Packages are first built or unpacked in a temporary directory and then moved to their "final resting place", assuming that yours has the needed permissions.

This is all explained in the R Admin/Install document which is part of every distribution these days:

On my machine it's here:
