I am trying to install RStudio on Ubuntu 20.
R-base is installed and working (4.1.2)
I then tried to install RStudio following the website: Download RStudio Server for Debian & Ubuntu - RStudio
sudo apt-get install gdebi-core wget https://download2.rstudio.org/server/bionic/amd64/rstudio-server-2021.09.1-372-amd64.deb sudo gdebi rstudio-server-2021.09.1-372-amd64.deb
However this does not work. The errors are (translating from Germany):
dpkg: Error related to archive rstudio-server-2021.09.1-372-amd64.deb
cannot open /usr/lib/rstudio-server/www/rstudio/4032CB57FF3A58D9FCAE4CBA2130587E.cache.js.dpkg-new
useradd: user »rstudio-server« already exists (I tried multiple times)
Has someone experienced something similar or could help me interpret what those errors mean?
Thank you in advance
Edit (December 10th, 2021): I was finally able to fix it by adding
--force-all to the installation command. Maybe this is usefull for someone encountering the same issue.
