Hi Nick,

There's a geospatial mailing list that might be helpful (r-sig-geo),
but also you don't give enough information to help.

Are you running Windows?
What version of QGIS did you install?
Where did you get RQGIS from - it is no longer on CRAN, and is
obsolete and not recommended because it only supports QGIS2

One option might be to try RQGIS3
(https://github.com/r-spatial/RQGIS3), but again there the developers
suggest that you don't, and offer some other possibilities.

The geospatial capabilities built into R are very good, and you might
not even need QGIS as part of your main workflow. Look into the sf and
raster (or terra) packages for vector and raster processing,

Good resources include https://r-spatial.org and the spatial data
science book at https://keen-swartz-3146c4.netlify.app
