Error package install for R (sf, units)


I am trying to install sf package in an R notebook in Fabric.


1: In func(...) : installation of package ‘units’ had non-zero exit status

2: In func(...) : installation of package ‘sf’ had non-zero exit status


I have tried both add it to the workspace and installing using install.packages in session. The issue is that SF uses the package units as a dependence, and when it tries to install units but it trows an error saying that libudunits2 was not found. Is there a way to add  libudunits2 to fabric?
Configuration failed because was not found.
Try installing: * deb: libudunits2-dev (Debian, Ubuntu, ...) * rpm: udunits2-devel (Fedora, EPEL, ...) * brew: udunits (OSX) If udunits2 is already installed in a non-standard location, use: --configure-args='--with-udunits2-lib=/usr/local/lib' if the library was not found, and/or: --configure-args='--with-udunits2-include=/usr/include/udunits2' if the header was not found, replacing paths with appropriate values. You can alternatively set UDUNITS2_INCLUDE and UDUNITS2_LIBS manually.

Thank you!
