    How long has it been stuck there ? It seems to be a downloading issue. – Félicien Mar 8 '18 at 9:39
  • Till now, it has been about an hour – MichaelXu Mar 8 '18 at 10:18
  • You can try to reset the download and then try again : CTRL+C to stop then sudo apt-get cleanto clean your local repo and then try the command again sudo apt-get install r-base r-base-dev (assuming this is the command you tried, since you didn't say it in your post) – Félicien Mar 8 '18 at 10:42
  • Amazing! I tried the command as you told and it is installed, and I also installed Rstudio-server, but when I opened Rstudio server, it uses old version R, any suggestion? – MichaelXu Mar 8 '18 at 13:18
  • You can try the "Linux" part of : support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/… – Félicien Mar 8 '18 at 13:42
