I have installed VMware and ubuntu 17.10. I cannot find the instructions to install R from the universal repository. The instructions I use error. Could you please send me download and installation instructions?
When I type sudo apt-get update I get the error below: DO you know what is going on?

/etc/apt/sources.list should fix the
Thank you for your reply. I will try that.
That worked for that error. Now, when I type sudo apt-get update, I get the message below

I don’t see the error in that offhand, but I’m not a Linux/
apt expert. Hopefully someone else knows more than I do – or you may need to ask at a better-targeted site, such as https://askubuntu.com/.
For what it is worth, I was trying to upgrade my Ubuntu 17.10 laptop with the current version or RStudio and for some reason couldn’t get it to install. I found the following worked for me:
wget --tries=3 --timeout=120 https://download1.rstudio.org/rstudio-xenial-1.1.383-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i rstudio-*-amd64.deb
The proxy was causing the problems. It seems that when working with a proxy one has to configure the apt folder.
The are program that I have to design a website GUI using RStudio server takes as input some proteomics files. I know one can read files stored in the hard drive when RStudio is running in my laptop, however, when the users run the R program from the internet website, will the files be uploaded from the users PCs or laptoPs to the server? How will the files be uploaded?
