Issue installing UniprotR package and dependency (magick)

Error Information:

**** -
I need to install the UniprotR package for a project, but I cannot install the package and its dependencies. I have attached a picture of the error.
I'm logging into Rstudio server in a computer cluster. I'm working in Rstudio version 3.6.3

Steps taken so far -

I have tried to install magick. I assume that it has something to do with installing the Magick++ library. Please let me know if and how I should install the Magick++ library in R.

I have been able to install the akalazam package, but only in the 3.6.3 version. I wonder if the installed package works in the 4.0.0 version, because I have installed and am working with the rentrez package in 4.0.0 version. Please let me know about this issue.

From Troubleshooting Guide: Using RStudio

You are assuming right, the error message is telling you that you are missing the Magick++ system library (not an R package) and you need to install it first.

For installing system libraries you need to have super user rights, so you might need to contact the computer cluster admin and ask them to install it for you.
