This seems to be an all time re-occuring issue, but the Answers I found didnt help me.
I am having trouble installing a newer version of R on my Ubuntu 16.04. I followed the answer here Installing latest version of R-base and here https://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/ubuntu/README.html and added
deb https://cran.uni-muenster.de/bin/linux/ubuntu zesty/ to my
/etc/apt/sources.list.d folder as file called
but this does not work for me. After removing R and trying to install r-base I still get:
$sudo apt-get install r-base Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or been moved out of Incoming. The following information may help to resolve the situation: The following packages have unmet dependencies: r-base : Depends: r-base-core (>= 3.4.1-2zesty0) but it is not going to be installed Depends: r-recommended (= 3.4.1-2zesty0) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: r-base-html but it is not going to be installed E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
Why are the dependencies not being installed?
Any idea how i can get the R version from Zesty Zapus (17.04) on my 16.04LTS ubuntu?
