While it is possible you will get the help you seek here,  I think you would likely to get more help,  and more knowledgeable help, on this more specialized issue,  at the Stan Forum.  https://discourse.mc-stan.org.  I remember seeing in the summaries I get some issues with different combinations of versions of R,  Stan and compilers.

I installed R stan following instructions in https://github.com/stan-dev/rstan/wiki/RStan-Getting-Started#how-to-use-rstan <https://github.com/stan-dev/rstan/wiki/RStan-Getting-Started#how-to-use-rstan> to the letter, but when I try to compile any model R leaves me hanging indefinitely (I’ve waited up to 30 minutes with ridiculously short models). When I press esc R says:
