Jupyterlab_code_formatter extension is not properly working on the google deployments

I would really like to use the jupyterlab_code_formatter on the deployments, and it seems to be installed by default?
I however get an error message saying:
Unable to find server plugin version, this should be impossible...

I did some digging and found this issue which seems to suggest this is a problem with R?

If anyone could advise me further on how to get this running, I would greatly appreciate it.
