Steps taken so far - i tried to install these packages with the new version of r (4.0) but then also it is showing the same error
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
install.packages("BiocManager")
BiocManager::install("DESeq2")

Please post the command you are using to install the package and the whole message you are getting (BTW this is not related to the IDE so I have changed category).

I can't replicate your issue, I also use Ubuntu 18 and I can install it without problems, but here are a some things to try

  • Make sure you have r-base-dev installed
sudo apt-get install r-base-dev
  • Update this packages before trying to install DESEq2
  • Try to install as superuser
