There are no intentional restrictions on OS use. I would guess that you updated your system after updating R, and the location R found GLIBCXX_3.4.20 is different from where it resides now. Also it is usually helpful to simplify the installation to the first package that fails to install rather than trying to install many packages that all fail for the same underlying reason (maybe trying to install DESeq2 fails, but the reason is because the Rcpp library fails, so try installing / troubleshooting Rcpp rather than DESeq2). it would likely be helpful to see the full installation attempt of the first package that fails to install.
