rgdal library not loading

Hi all, I'm having trouble loading the rgdal library. I have updated R and RStudio. I'm on a MacBook and recently updated to OS 11.0.1. Below are the error messages. Any help greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 83963272 bytes (80.1 MB)

The downloaded binary packages are in

rgdal library for R relies on your system having GDAL utility, so you'll have to research how to install GDAL for macos, before attempting to install the R package that depends on it.

Same issue here. Unable to load rgdal or sf after "upgrade" to Big Sur. I reinstalled GDAL, but that didn't work. Any tips greatly appreciated!!
