When prompting the user for a password, we need to temporarily disable
echo. In a tty we can call posix stty -echo (example below). The
RStudio GUI has a native password entry function that can be triggered
via getOption('askpass'). Is there simple method to prompt for a
password in the R for Mac

How did you install libpoppler? Such errors typically appear when you
link to a shared library which was built with another (incompatible)
compiler than the one you use for compiling R packages.

Can you include a reproducible example? This seems to work for me as expected:
x <- rnorm(1e8)
saveRDS(x, tmp <- tempfile())
y <- readRDS(tmp)
Could be a hw issue with your disk.
