R graphics engine version 14 is not supported by this version of RStudio (neither v1.3.959 nor v1.4.1717)

I got the following error after upgrading R to the latest version

R graphics engine version 14 is not supported by this version of RStudio. The Plots tab will be disabled until a newer version of RStudio is installed. 

so I upgraded to the lastest RStudio v1.4.1717 from v1.3.959 following the official instructions here

I still do not have use of my Plots tab, when I run plot(c(1,2,3,4,5,6,7)), it just prints an empty 4kb pdf file to the current working directory instead of the expected:

I'm having the same problem. Only that I can't upgrade from RStudio v1.3.959 to v1.4.1717 due to the latest version incompatibility with macOS v10.13.6. R version 4.1.0 (2021-05-18) -- "Camp Pontanezen" is compatible with my system, and the downgrading to the last R version didn't work.
