Error when Install openssl package in the new R-3.5.0 version in the SUSE Linux

In our SUSE Linux 11 system, there is a number of R version installed as module avil. Now i installed R-3.5.0 (with the _SL suffix) and update the R-studio server and configure R-studio to use R-3.5.0_SL as default.
Now when user/me try to install Several dependencies, it cannot be installed, for example, the package “openssl”. I get the following error (using the command line R or from R-Studio):

The major difference I found in R-3.5.0 with the existing version. It has new directory lib64. This directory contains R and pkgconfig. I am new in R environment. Is any of you could help me to do the process.

I tried several ways to install (manually download the package and use the local link, “R CMD INSTALL” is not working on our server, don’t know as i am new here)
