Updating R packages

In this post, I cover updating R packages in RStudio.  You have a few options for updating your R packages in RStudio.

(Option 1) From the menu, select Tools -> “Check for Package Updates”RStudio_Menu_Tools_CheckforPackageUpdates

You will get this message if all packages are up-to-date:


(Option 2) From the Packages tab in the bottom-right pane, click on “Update”RStudio_PackagesTab_Update

(Option 3) Execute the command update.packages()


You may see output like this …


Enter “y” to update, “N” to not update, and “c” to cancel.

Thanks for reading!
