Start up error after updating R and RStudio

Error Information:

Description of issue -
I updated R to 4.3.0 and RStudio to 2023.03.0+386 today. When I opened RStudio I immediately got the popup error message:

"R encountered a fatal error.
The session was terminated."

I then have to force quit RStudio to close it. R seems to be functioning as I can open R and run code in the base program.

Attempted steps taken to fix -
I've uninstalled and reinstalled R and RStudio, restarted my computer, and followed the suggestions here about removing .RData. I don't have or can't locate an .Rprofile file to try removing it.

System Information:

  • RStudio Edition: Desktop
  • RStudio Version: 2023.03.0+386
  • OS Version: Monterey 12.6.3
  • R Version: 4.3.0
  • Output your diagnostics report (if possible):

From RStudio Desktop Will Not Start on

In the Terminal, what is the result of this command?

ls -l /Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/

drwxrwxr-x 6 root admin 192 Apr 25 15:00 3.3
drwxrwxr-x 3 root admin 96 Mar 11 2022 4.0
drwxrwxr-x 3 root admin 96 Jan 18 10:45 4.1
drwxrwxr-x 6 root admin 192 Jan 18 10:45 4.2
drwxrwxr-x 6 root admin 192 Apr 25 18:20 4.3-x86_64
lrwxrwxr-x 1 root admin 10 Apr 25 18:20 Current -> 4.3-x86_64

FWIW, I never found out what was going wrong on my end, but I downloaded a less recent version of R (4.2.3) and now things seem to be working ok. My RStudio version is still 2023.03.0+386
