Why isn't RPR available when using command line as root user?

I'm trying to run a command line render as root user using sudo -i to log in so I can have the computer shutdown after the render is done. The terminal responds with this while trying to render:

 

Error: Engine 'RPR' not available for scene 'from frame 90cylinder' (an add-on may need to be installed or enabled)

 

I'm on Mac OS 10.15.2 - I've tried blender 2.82 with RPR 2.3.4 and also tried with 2.4.11.

When I just open a terminal window and render without going to the root, it works fine. But when it's done rendering I have to enter a password for it to run the sudo shutdown command, which defeats the purpose of what I'm trying to do.

 

I don't have this problem with cycles though...

 

Thanks in advance!
