Hi, and welcome!

For future reference, please see the FAQ: What's a reproducible example (`reprex`) and how do I do one? Using a reprex, complete with representative data will attract quicker and more answers.

Do you see the following from a terminal window:

 $ 529:  ls -l  /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.6/Resources/lib/ | grep libc.*
-rwxrwxr-x  1 root  admin   825K Dec 12 10:55 libc++.1.dylib*
-rwxrwxr-x  1 root  admin   212K Dec 12 10:55 libc++abi.1.dylib*

No, I downloaded from the R website directly. It's so painful that I had to halt my thesis because of this issue.

It looks like something may have gone wrong in your R installation. You didn't install from Anaconda by any chance?

No. I didn't nsee anything like this from the terminal window

If I was you I would simply start again with a clean R installation and package library.

About your thesis, there are alternatives you can use while you fix your problem, like RStudio Cloud for example.
