Tidyverse installation Openssl Error Ubuntu 18.04

Hello Folks,
I am new to R.
I installed R and RStudio on my Ubuntu machine. I was also installing a few packages to set up my environment.
I am receiving an error when installing tidyverse.
I am reporting the relevant part below.

installing to /home/andrea/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/4.1/00LOCK-openssl/00new/openssl/libs
** R

** byte-compile and prepare package for lazy loading

My problem appears to be different from those often found in other discussions.
Does anyone know what is going on here?
