Bad news: RQGIS is apparently not maintained any more [1,2], because it
only supports the old version of QGIS (2 instead of 3). There was
something called RQGIS3, but it didn't work out, either [3]. Your best
bet might be something else called qgisprocess [4], which isn't on CRAN
(yet?), but at least doesn't have scary warnings in its README.

I'll second the advice to ask in R-SIG-Geo. That X11-related problem (?)
might solve itself by the time you switch to another package, but if it
doesn't, make sure to mention the exact error message and the operating
system you are running: X11 is very different between Windows, macOS
and other POSIX-compatible OSes.
