Looks like you don't have administrator permission, try to get them first and then try again,

Get an administrator account for windows.

If your account has local admin privileges then right click on R-studio icon and use "run as administrator". Looks like you are using Windows so this should work.

Read about lib argument of install.packages(), and set it to a directory where you have write access.

lib - character vector giving the library directories where to install the packages. Recycled as needed. If missing, defaults to the first element of .libPaths().
