I am new in R. Trying to install XL connect to read my excel file. However when I am typing

> install.packages("XLconnect") or

 > install.packages("XLConnect", dependencies=TRUE)

I am getting the following error:

Warning in install.packages :
  unable to access index for repository /src/contrib
Installing package into ‘/Users/banerjeed/Library/R/3.2/library’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :
  unable to access index for repository /src/contrib
Warning in install.packages :
  package ‘XLconnect’ is not available (for R version 3.2.1)
Warning in install.packages :
  unable to access index for repository /bin/macosx/mavericks/contrib/3.2

Is it really the version is wrong? I am also tried installing RCurl got the same message. I am using a 64bit Mac, Java 8.

Cannot understand where the problem is .Kindly help.

Thanks. Debbie

Possible problem:

Watch out for capitalization. Try XLConnect in place of XLconnect.

Diagnostic:

You can type library(XLConnect) to see whether the package is actually installed. Unless your installation worked, it'll say Error in library(XLConnect) : there is no package called 'XLConnect'.

Thanks for your response. I tried with both got the same error. Then went to R and installed it. Came back to R studio, then found it available to be installed in R studio. Just tried again then, got successfully installed in R studio too. Didn't understand what the problem was , but it got solved. Thanks for your response though.

Please ask this over at StackExchange as this is not bioinformatics-related.
