Trying to instal seurat package via github but get non-zero exit status

I am trying to install an R package from the GitHub site:
But when I copy the code in Rstudio on my mac is get the error of non-zero exit status.

The system I am currently running on:
MacBook Pro: version 10.15.3
R build: 3.6.2
R studio: 1.2.5

Here's the error message:

I have also tried in R but got the same error.

Kind regards


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. Not needed for this question, though!

We have the same setup and I get the same error

I get the same error in Ubuntu, so it's a problem with the package.
