Can I install `caret` on CentOS?

package-installation
#1

I am running the latest version of RServer on a CentOS EC2 instance.

I'd like to install caret, but I am getting this error message.

install.packages("caret", dependencies=TRUE, repos='http://cran.rstudio.com/')

Installing package into
‘/home/username/R/x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu-library/3.4’ (as ‘lib’ is
unspecified) Warning in install.packages : package ‘caret’ is not
available (for R version 3.4.1)

I saw that the CRAN page has OS and Windows binaries, but not Linux.

I looked into installing a Microsoft Server EC2 machine instead, but it looks like RServer is not supported. Can I install caret on Linux?

Yes, you can, your problem is the R version you are using, try updating R to a newer version (the latest stable version is 3.5.3)
If there are no R binaries available for CentOS you can compile it from source.

I installed R Server and Shiny with the newest versions available on the website.

Here's my code

          #install RStudio-Server 1.0.153 (2017-07-20)
          wget https://download2.rstudio.org/server/centos6/x86_64/rstudio-server-rhel-1.2.1335-x86_64.rpm
          yum install -y --nogpgcheck rstudio-server-rhel-1.2.1335-x86_64.rpm
          rm rstudio-server-rhel-1.2.1335-x86_64.rpm
          #install shiny and shiny-server (2017-08-25)
          R -e "install.packages('shiny', repos='http://cran.rstudio.com/')"
          wget https://download3.rstudio.org/centos6.3/x86_64/shiny-server-1.5.9.923-x86_64.rpm
          yum install -y --nogpgcheck shiny-server-1.5.9.923-x86_64.rpm

RStudio is not the same as R they are two different things, have you also updated R?

sudo yum install epel-release
sudo yum install R

I ran both of those commands and got back this output:

[ec2]$ sudo yum install epel-release

This should be working for CentOS 7 although I can't be sure because I don't use CentOS myself, what CentoS version are you using?

It looks like I was wrong about CentOS. I know it's a type of redhat.

[ec2]$ cat os-release
NAME="Amazon Linux AMI"
VERSION="2018.03"
ID="amzn"
ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"
VERSION_ID="2018.03"
PRETTY_NAME="Amazon Linux AMI 2018.03"
ANSI_COLOR="0;33"
CPE_NAME="cpe:/o:amazon:linux:2018.03:ga"
HOME_URL="http://aws.amazon.com/amazon-linux-ami/"

It's running on this image.

I think there is no newer R binary available for rhel based OS' you could compile it from source but unfortunately I don't how to do it with this linux version, hopefully someone else could help you.
