The latest RStudio version requires macOS >= 11 I think you need to update your OS.

Thank you! I just download an old version (from 2021) of RStudio, and I start it successfully.

Hi! I am having this same problem, but I can’t update my macOs as I have no space… where did you get that older version from? It could help me a lot…
Thanks! :slight_smile:

Above is the link for several old versions. I pick the version from 2021.09.1. Hope this can help you!
