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