Issues with R code-env on a machine with no internet connection

I'm working on a machine with no connectivity to the internet and integrated R using this link:

For the CRAN mirror, I have given the location of the local directory where packages are placed:


However, it isn't able to pick up the packages from the local directory and is throwing this error:

The packages needed by R are placed in the directory: /opt/dss/R-packages/R-packages/

Could you please advise on how to move forward with this?

At the moment, the download-R-packages script can only be used for the base installation of DSS, not for code envs.

For code envs, you'll need to create a real CRAN mirror. There are various R packages that can help you for that.
