fyi

the line

sudo apt-key adv –keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com –recv-keys E084DAB9

should be

sudo apt-key adv ––keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com ––recv-keys E084DAB9

Something changed the two “en dash” (the minus sign to us normal people) in front of keyserver and recvkey into an “em dash” (the longer dash).

@raquellu, you probably have to enable the universe packages of Ubuntu. Go to Software and Updates and on the first tab enable the "Community-maintained free and open-source software (universe)" checkbox. Then try again.

You need to add it in your repositories list. That should work :
$ sudo sh -c "cat > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/r.list"

deb https://cloud.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu xenial-cran35/
Ctrl-D

  • update
    $ sudo apt-get update
  • sign the keys
    $ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys E298A3A825C0D65DFD57CBB651716619E084DAB9
  • install
    $ sudo apt-get install r-base

Don't forget to uninstall the current version first !

I had a problem with sudo gdebi rstudio-1.0.44-amd64.deb so I used commands bellow instead:

sudo dpkg -i rstudio-1.0.44-amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install -f

Hey, I had the same problems upgrading to the newest R-version.
First, remove all your r installation if it doesn't work by
sudo apt purge r-base* r-recommended r-cran-*

The only way to get R 3.5/3.6 installed correctly was the following way:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:marutter/rrutter3.5
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install r-api-3.5
