Thank you very much. I read ?install.packages and saw all the options but
had no idea what to use.

Boy howdy! Removing the load testing allowed the package to install:

installing to /usr/lib/R/library/later/libs
** R
** inst
** byte-compile and prepare package for lazy loading
** help
*** installing help indices
** building package indices
** installing vignettes
* DONE (later)

Is it worth exploring why testing loading failed here for this package?

Best regards,
