Good morning. In my continuing pursuit of self-taught R programming I am interested in following the tutorial provided by Bloggers.com "Beautiful and Powerful Correlation Tables in R"

https://www.r-bloggers.com/beautiful-and-powerful-correlation-tables-in-r-2/ 3/

Although, I have hit a snag in the first step?

devtools::install_github("neuropsychology/psycho.R") # Install the newest version

I have installed both psycho & tidyverse pkgs, however, when I go to run the devtools::install_github("neuropsychology/psycho.R") piece I get this warning.

Just a guess, but does this have to do with presetting my work directory?
