Ubuntu: Unable to install R Studio



Question:

I tried to install RStudio after installing R in Ubuntu. When I clicked to install via Ubuntu software, clicking the install button does nothing. But sometimes when I click it, it starts loading and after a while it says rstudio installed. But it's not really installed.

So I installed it via terminal using:

$ sudo dpkg -i rstudio-0.99.902-i386.deb   Selecting previously unselected package rstudio.  (Reading database ... 175645 files and directories currently installed.)  Preparing to unpack rstudio-0.99.902-i386.deb ...

Errors were encountered while processing:   rstudio  

What are the steps to rectify this error?


Solution:1

Installing from a .deb file through dpkg does not resolve dependency issues the same way installation through apt will. After running the sudo dpkg -i yourpackage.deb, you should run sudo apt-get install -f to fix and complete the installation if any errors were encountered by dpkg.


Solution:2

Your best bet is to use gdebi to do RStudio installations. It automatically resolves dependencies (unlike dpkg).

sudo apt-get install gdebi-core  sudo gdebi rstudio-0.99.902-i386.deb  

In fact, that's what RStudio themselves recommends for rstudio-server installation.


Solution:3

For me it worked like this:

Add the following entry in /etc/apt/sources.list file

deb https://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu xenial/  

All the mirrors are listed here:

You can find out your corresponding Ubuntu release by doing this on command line

lsb_release -a  

After that

sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install r-base
