Error deploying to shinyapps.io

It may be some time before the Ubuntu R packages are available on CRAN, from what I can tell by Googling a bit:

For the time being, you would need to downgrade to R 3.4.4 or lower in order to deploy to shinyapps.io

Any update on this issue? I read up there that it is an Ubuntu delay, but is macOS also "slow" with these updates or are they the same? I am having exactly the same error message on my macOS R 3.5.0

There is no update at this time.
When the 3.5.0 binaries show up here, shinyapps.io will pick them up.
This should have nothing to do with macOS binaries, those are available today. However, shinyapps.io attempts to match the R environment you are running locally, so while R 3.5.0 is available now for macOS and Windows, if you want to deploy to shinyapps.io, you will need to stick with a lower version for the time being.

Hi,
Same problem BUT I'm using Win10 and R3.5.0 (and RStudio 1.1.447).
Testing shiny based on: http://shiny.rstudio.com/articles/shinyapps.html

"...R 3.5.0 is available now for macOS and Windows..."
Let's ask it other way round: Can anyone confirm it really works with Windows10?

shinyapps.io is a Linux environment based on Ubuntu Trusty, as such, support for R 3.5.0 will not be available until the R binaries for Ubuntu Trusty become available, regardless of your local environment having R 3.5.0 due to your running macOS or Windows.

So if it takes 1 year for Ubuntu to make that version available, then you'll have all your users unable to publish their apps for 1 year? Or make your users use an old version of R?

While I appreciate your frustration here (believe me, it is not fun giving disappointing answers to this same question multiple times a day), I think you are approaching a grey area in the friendliness of the discourse in this community.

If a user must use the latest version of R that just came out, RStudio offers products, both open source and professional, that may be used to host Shiny applications on operating systems other than Ubuntu or with manually built R binaries.

We are investigating options for switching to using our own R binaries so we are not dependent in this way in the future, but there is no time frame that I can communicate at this time.

That said, I do not expect this situation to last a year.

Cheers!

Many thanks for your response and your hard work.

Is there a way to receive a notification when it will be available?

Best regards!

We will post both here on the Community site and on the shinyapps-users Google Group.

Anything we as the R/shiny community can do to help?

I believe that my problem is related to this one. The easiest way to understand my problem is click on Home or About. If either case, NOT FOUND is displayed on https://pjossenbruggen.shinyapps.io/gpgithub/.

There is a warning but no errors in R Markdown, Deploy or shinyapps.io logs. library(RJSONIO) and library(shiny) were added to the code to eliminate NAs in earlier runs.

I feel that I must install a package to overcome this issue.

The shinyapps.io log and sessionInfo are:

Our effort to shift to our own R builds is well underway and I expect to be able to give an update later this week. Thank you for the offer of help, though, it is appreciated.

If you're deploying from Travis CI to shinyapps.io (yes, that's a thing :), remember that you can always hotfix this problem in your .travis.yml:

language: r

r: 
  - 3.4.4
# this makes travis-ci (which runs on ubuntu) use the last available R version.

Full R travis docs here.

Just remember to delete the hard-coded R version once this problem is solved :slight_smile:.

Thanks as always to @josh and the entire RStudio team for the amazing work. :clap:

Is this the same issue or is everything discussed above pertains to Linux distros only?

Sounds like the same issue. It has to do with the shinyapps.io back end server not having been able to upgrade to 3.5.0.

Thanks Kenneth! i switched back to R 3.4.3, updated/reinstalled a few packages, and published my app to shinyapps.io website. I hope RStudio catches up with R quickly.
