Hello, I am trying to install RStudio on my Ubuntu 20.04 laptop, using the "rstudio-1.3.1093-amd64.deb" file. When I try to install it, the console gives the message :
(Reading database ... 280798 files and directories currently installed.) Preparing to unpack rstudio-1.3.1093-amd64.deb ... Unpacking rstudio (1.3.1093) over (1.3.1093) ... dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of rstudio: rstudio depends on libclang-dev; however: Package libclang-dev is not installed. dpkg: error processing package rstudio (--install): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Processing triggers for gnome-menus (3.36.0-1ubuntu1) ...

Processing triggers for shared-mime-info (1.15-1) ... Errors were encountered while processing: rstudio
I have tried to install the package libclang-dev manually, but it gave me this message () :
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package libclang-8-dev
I have tried to install the R Studio Desktop, but was met with the same issue.
I also tried the command :
apt-get -f install
But it only removed the package I have been trying to install.
I am using Ubuntu 20.04 and am trying to install the latest version of R Studio available for Ubuntu. I was able to install R without any difficulty.
There might be a very easy solution or I may be doing the installation wrong. I am both new to Ubuntu and R.
Thank you very much for your help.
