Cannot install packages in R

I tried to install packages in my R script, but I cannot install packages. Why is that the case?

Mainly because R installs packages in some system folder, which is not allowed on Repl.it due to security concerns.

So we can only use Base R but none of the packages? @SixBeeps

@BerkCanCan Oddly enough, yes. Definitely recommend posting about it on the Feedback forum though. Other languages have a package manager, so I wouldn't see there being an issue adding R support.
