Why do I get error in structure when I try to run affylmGUI package?

I have downloaded everything that external websites have told me to download for affylmGUI to work but I keep getting the same error when I try to run it. I have copied the packages I have downloaded below and the error I get.

To begin, type affylmGUI()

Am I missing any packages potentially? If anyone could help me understand this error that would be great!

I think this is a bug with the tcl/tk version you have installed in your system (not in R), you could try updating the library from an external source, I can't tell you exactly how because I'm not a macOS user.
