Can't install any package in personal library (it tries to load(tidyverse))

Hello, community!

I'm working on a screen in a Debian server and I was able to install packages in a personal library. Still, I had to delete it and now I'm not able to install packages anymore in any library.
Furthermore, every package that I try to install returns the same error that involves loading "tidyverse" (even when I try to install tidyverse), for example:

> install.packages("tidyverse", dependencies = F)
Installing package into ‘/var/fasttmp/neugenio/libraries’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
trying URL ''
Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 704618 bytes (688 KB)
downloaded 688 KB

Error in library(tidyverse) : there is no package called ‘tidyverse’
Calls: %>% -> suppressMessages -> withCallingHandlers
Execution halted

The downloaded source packages are in
Warning message:
In install.packages("tidyverse", dependencies = F) :
  installation of package ‘tidyverse’ had non-zero exit status

> .libPaths()
[1] "/var/fasttmp/neugenio/libraries"

Unfortunately, I cannot attach images here because I'm a new user, but I get the same message (trying to load tidyverse) for all packages I try to install.
Even when installing "tidyverse" with dependencies, all packages try to load "tidyverse" (???)

I have sufficient memory space in the server, so this may not be a problem:

neugenio@brucutuIV:~$ quota -s
neugenio@sites's password:
Disk quotas for user neugenio (uid 4970):
     Filesystem   space   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit   grace
                   555M   2000M   2400M            8490       0       0

Also, when changing the library path the error persists.

Any idea about how to solve that will be very helpful!

Thanks in advance :wink:

PS: I've searched this error in Google, Stackoverflow, ChatGPT, and here, and couldn't find a solution :confused:
