Free(): invalid size when downloading 'pgirmess' packages

sadly, I am back with 'pgirmess' packages issues !!
info : Rstudio (R v3.6) user on Linux, Xubuntu LTS 18.06
So, I might have a mess inside my R files because I downloaded separately other required packages (dependencies) but the issue seems elsewhere :

install.packages("pgirmess") delivers:

    Warning in install.packages :

About expectations : I just wish I could have a working package, even if it's in an old version !
I tried freeing up some disk space (out of despair, who knows?), or download the package differently but I think I failed those alternates attempts...

Anyway, I'm always grateful for some help,
thanks in advance ~
