Hello Dataiku guys,
Does anyone know why I have this error message and how to solve it when I try to install a package in an R recipe?
Thanks.

    Hi @dot101

    Your DSS has UIF enabled. In this setup, any user that is not a DSS system user cannot install R packages into the built-in code env. Moreover, we do not recommend installing R packages into the built-in R code env but rather create a new R managed code env and install required packages there:

    https://doc.dataiku.com/dss/latest/code-envs/operations-r.html

    Later on, you can switch to this code env from Kernel -> Change kernel.

    Hope this helps.
