Instructions on creating an R environment don't work

I’m trying to install RStudio from Anaconda desktop. These directions show how, and the process looks straightforward. However, I’m unable to select the R checkbox to create an R environment. It’s grayed out and can’t be selected. Any ideas of what to do to install RStudio?


Monitoring because I have the same issue…

I have been trying to do this too. Hopefully you get an helpful response.

it may indicate that the R package is not available in the selected environment. Make sure you have the necessary channels added and try updating conda with

conda update -n base -c defaults conda

After updating, try creating a new environment with RStudio again.
