Issues installing package with R Studio's package manager, CentOS, R Studio Workbench

I am encountering some issues here. I thought originally it might be due to using renv, but this occurs in a 'plain' session too. I see errors like this:

Installing cpp11 [0.4.2] ...
OK [linked cache]
Installing arrow [9.0.0] ...

I'm using

"Repositories": [
{
"Name": "CRAN",
"URL": "https://packagemanager.rstudio.com/all/__linux__/centos8/latest/"
}
]

Any help is appreciated!

The gtar error is unusual, but I'd like to focus on the installation of Arrow. It can be tricky because of the need for libarrow.

There are some installation options and troubleshooting steps for Arrow here:

Good luck.
