Hi all, every time I start up Studio, I get the following error message:

Error installing package: * installing *source* package ‘manipulate’ ...
mv: rename /Users/iryna/Library/R/3.1/library/manipulate to /Users/iryna/Library/R/3.1/library/00LOCK-manipulate/manipulate: Permission denied
Warning in file.copy(f, instdir, TRUE) :
  problem copying ./NAMESPACE to /Users/iryna/Library/R/3.1/library/manipulate/NAMESPACE: Permission denied
Warning in file(file, ifelse(append, "a", "w")) :

Error in file(file, ifelse(append, "a", "w")) : 
  cannot open the connection
ERROR: installing package DESCRIPTION failed for package ‘manipulate’
* removing ‘/Users/iryna/Library/R/3.1/library/manipulate’

Interestingly the package loads correctly:
> library ("manipulate")
> isAvailable()
[1] TRUE

I have found an there person having the same issue: https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/202191748-Startup-problem-with-manipulate?page=1#community_comment_212580527 

But no answer has been given to him.
