R Project "Version Control Git" will not reopen

Description of issue - I have created a GitHub repository (still private because of data policy) and cloned it into Rstudio to create an R Project Version Control using git. The creation of the project goes well, it becomes available in the right path on my computer and I can use both r script and r markdown to create content. I can commit and push to the git repository, and everything goes well. However, if I close the R session and then try to reopen it, the screen in Rstudio shows that it is loading the project but never finish it. If I open an R session out of the project, create a script, close it and then reopen, it goes well. If I create a project using: create project > new directory > new project, everything goes well after close it and reopen. The only issue is with the project that is pushed to GitHub. Before updating both R and RStudio, things were working normally. I made a backup of all R projects and then removed all of them from my computer. Then, I cleaned all "defunct R sessions" and tried to clone the git project once more. But the problem persists. Any help is very welcome!

Here is the screenshot of the project when I load the project. The "loading circle" in "Environment" does not disappear and the project is not loaded:
