Avant Garde R Package Installation Failure

Avant Garde R Package Installation Failure sgoulding  2023-10-05 14:05

Hi, Skyline Team.

I'm running into issues installing the Avant Garde tool in Skyline. I've tried to install it through both the Tool Store and as an External Tool, but I keep running into issues with specific R packages not installing. The two packages that won't install are stringr and ggplot2. This is happening on several different computers running the most current version of Skyline Daily.

Do you have any suggestions about how to remedy this? I tried installing the specified versions of ggplot2 (3.2.1) and stringr (1.3.0) outside of Skyline through R (v 4.0.3) but there were issues with the tool when I did that. I attached the error message I got related to the tool stoor failed installation of ggplot2 and stringr.

Someone else posted the same error message about a year ago on the AvantGardeDIA support page at the end of this support request:

It does not look like anyone ever figured out a solution to the problem.

OK, thanks, Nick. I'll post a solution if I ever figure it out.

Hi Nick,
Thanks for the update - I meant R not JAVA - if nobody else was able to figure out a solution then its probably not the R configuration specific to my computer. Hopefully, somebody can figure this out in the future. In the meantime we are using AvantGarde as a standalone command line program.
