I experimented and found that I too could not install rmgarch.  However 
the string of error messages that I got was quite different from yours.

I did some scrounging around and after a bit of trial and error found 
that I needed to do:

sudo apt-get install libgmp3-dev
sudo apt-get install libmpfr-dev

Then the R command


worked.  (Note that "~/Rlib" is where I keep my "contributed" packages.)

This is under Ubuntu 18.04.  I don't know if this will work for you 
since, as I said, the error messages that I initially got were different 
from those that you got.

*Don't* ask me about what to do under Mac OSX or (God save us!) under 
Windoze!!! :-)



P.S. I have taken the liberty of CC-ing this to the r-help list in case 
it is of interest to others or in case others may have useful 
contributions to add.
