Cannot compile R igraph 1.4.1 despite all satisfied dependencie

Dear all,

I followed the GitHub instrusctions and installed all the necessary dependencies on Linux Mint 21.1 (same as Ubuntu), i.e. build-essential, gfortran, g++, libxml2-dev, libglpk-dev. However, it fails with this strange error message:

R CMD INSTALL igraph_1.4.1.tar.gz 
* installing to library ‘/home/fifis/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/4.2’
* installing *source* package ‘igraph’ ...
** package ‘igraph’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
** using staged installation
/usr/local/lib/R/bin/Rcmd: 64: exec: config: not found
/usr/local/lib/R/bin/Rcmd: 64: exec: config: not found
configure: error: No C++11 compiler is available
ERROR: configuration failed for package ‘igraph’
* removing ‘/home/fifis/R/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-library/4.2/igraph’

I compiled R from source and had no such error message.The file /usr/local/lib/R/bin/Rcmd is in place, and on its 64th line, it says
exec "${cmd}" ${extra} "${@}".

Is igraph calling the configure script in some non-standard manner? Which thing should I be trying to locate with which for further diagnostics?

Thank you in advance for a working solution / suggestion what might be missing on my system.

What does R CMD config CXX11 output on your system?
