When I type

sudo apt-get install r-base-core

I get the following error

The following packages have unmet dependencies. r-base-core : Depends: libc6 (>= 2.29) but 2.27-3ubuntu1 is to be installed

Now libc6 as far as I understand is an important library which should not be removed.

So how to upgrade from the current version (2.27) to any version >= 2.29?

To my knowledge, libc6 2.29 is the latest version. And it is available for Ubuntu 19.04 (link).

If you want to install libc6 amd64, open this link to download it, then open the download folder in the terminal and run sudo dpkg -i libc6_2.29-0ubuntu2_amd64.deb

If you want to install libc6 i386, you can download it from this link, then open the download folder in the terminal and run sudo dpkg -i libc6_2.29-0ubuntu2_i386.deb

Since the question originated trying to install the latest version of the R programming language,

this link: https://rtask.thinkr.fr/blog/installation-of-r-3-5-on-ubuntu-18-04-lts-and-tips-for-spatial-packages/

covers the 3.6 R version installation procedure.
