Updating R packages such as dplyr

I am using RStudio on the Data Science Experience. I cannot update dplyr because it is loaded by sparkylr, but it is quite an old version and causes my code to break. I need to be able to update dplyr (ideally I would like to install the tidyverse package). I am not even using sparklyr in my analysis, but I cannot unload it.
