I am desperately trying to get R version 4.x on my Redhat server which only gets 3.6 through yum (EPEL does not go higher).
I tried both install from RPM and from source as detailed in the otherwise very nice Posit page Posit - Install R - Posit Documentation
In both cases, I end up with an incomplete install lacking several folders (under which library) and consequently a R command returning the following errors at start
/opt/R/4.1.3 $ ll total 0 drwxr-xr-x. 5 root root 38 Jan 5 16:24 . drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 18 Jan 5 16:24 .. drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 28 Jan 5 16:24 bin drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 30 Jan 5 16:24 lib drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 16 Jan 5 16:24 share
Does anyone here have a way to correct this and get a full R install on RHEL? (using version 3.6 is not an option for me; neither moving to ubuntu on that server)
