can't install "tidyverse"

Hello, I have already installed two packages ("psych", "stats"), but can't install tidyverse. What can I do now? I already installed opennssl. I am Using Ubuntu 18.04.2. I hope I'm at the right place to aks for help. Thanks for your help in advance.

# error message:

------------------------- ANTICONF ERROR ---------------------------
Configuration failed because openssl was not found. Try installing:
 * deb: libssl-dev (Debian, Ubuntu, etc)
 * rpm: openssl-devel (Fedora, CentOS, RHEL)
 * csw: libssl_dev (Solaris)
 * brew: openssl@1.1 (Mac OSX)
If openssl is already installed, check that 'pkg-config' is in your
PATH and PKG_CONFIG_PATH contains a openssl.pc file. If pkg-config
is unavailable you can set INCLUDE_DIR and LIB_DIR manually via:
R CMD INSTALL --configure-vars='INCLUDE_DIR=... LIB_DIR=...'

You should run this in your console and install this package before rerunning install.packages("tidyverse")

I had a similar issues with Linux Mint 19. Before I could install Tidyverse in R, at the command line in Mint I needed to install several packages:

sudo apt-get install r-base-dev xml2 libxml2-dev libssl-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev unixodbc-dev
