(Continuing the discussion from Issues with packages after updating to R 3.5.0 as I thought that it might be easier to start a new, more specific thread):
I had to reinstall a lot of packages following the upgrade to R 3.5.0 released yesterday and I am running into an unsual issue with the
Error in system2(file.path(R.home("bin"), "R"), c(if (nzchar(arch)) paste0("--arch=", : cannot popen ' '/usr/lib64/R/bin/R' --no-save --slave 2>&1 < '/tmp/RtmpU4dXOt/file3fb5b89c507'', probable reason 'Cannot allocate memory'
I have lots of RAM and am a little surprised by the error message. I've never had such issue before. But maybe it has to do with R memory allocation? I have never had memory issue before and am very ignorant on this topic.
Note: I will also post in an Arch Linux forum as this may be an Arch Linux issue rather than a R one and I will update here if I find a solution there.
