Dependency error when installing RStudio on Ubuntu 22.04 with libssl.

I am trying to install RStudio on Ubuntu 22.04. I currently have R 4.1.2 installed on it.

I use the following command as superuser to install RStudio:

gdebi rstudio-2022.02.1-461-amd64.deb

When I try installing, I get this error message:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
Reading state information... Done
This package is uninstallable
Dependency is not satisfiable: libssl1.0.0|libssl1.0.2|libssl1.1

I currently have libssl3 installed (3.0.2-ubuntu1). I cannot find any candidates using apt-cache search libssl1.

I've looked up others' attempts on Stackoverflow here, but to no avail: Installing R Studio on Ubuntu 22.04 - Stack Overflow

How do I go about installing Rstudio on Ubuntu 22.04?


Exactly the same issue here I followed the instructions with the version suggested here and nothing. I also tried with anaconda-navigator doesn't even download it. Any help please.

I solved it by following this

We're working on preparing a version of RStudio that is compatible (out of the box) with Ubuntu 22; if you'd like to try it, you can get it here:


Thank you for this! <3


Thanks for the link. I can move this to a new thread, but I tried the most recent build on Ubuntu 22.04 with R 4.2.0 and the install works fine, but the app crashes every time:

I had the same problem with the SSL dependencies as the OP and on a fresh and updated install of Ubuntu Mate 22.04. The dailies worked perfectly, thanks for the link!
