comment How to know if the running platform is Ubuntu or CentOS with help of a Bash script?
This can probably be simplified using the lsb_release tool, which should read out the same files. lsb_release -i reports either Distributor ID: Ubuntu or Distributor ID: CentOS in these cases.

comment Avoid Upgrade to Software Beta Versions
Both the "official" CRAN Ubuntu repository and the ~marutter PPA now appear to have this version (the package is called 3.0.3.20140328 but identifies itself as 3.1.0 beta), so you probably got it from one of those. Running update.packages(checkBuilt=T) should solve most problems with R packages not loading though.

The version of R provided by Ubuntu 12.04 is still 2.14 (see packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=r-base ) - so you have added some repository which has provided a beta version.
