Thanks for this suggestion.

Pushing the investigation a bit further, I found that the error resulted in chain (curl -> httr -> plotly -> Hmisc -> TraMineR -> TraMineRextras) from an issue of the package curl with the ucrt tool. An update of curl with a fix has been released today. So seems that I just have to wait until curl is built for the ucrt experimental toolchain.
