I am trying to build R for Data Science. I have it loaded as an RStudio project, and I cloned it directly from the R4DS repository using the functionality built into RStudio.
After pressing Build Website or
running rmarkdown::render_site(encoding = 'UTF-8'), I get this error:
Error in rmarkdown::render_site(encoding = "UTF-8") : No site generator found.
This happens on a pretty clean and fully patched Ubuntu 19.10 VM. I am running R 3.6.1 and RStudio 1.2.5033. I installed the rmarkdown package, and I have all packages on the current release.
The weird thing is I do not get this error on my Windows 10 machine. The main difference I can spot is I am running R 3.6.3 on Windows.
I am unclear how to proceed. This setup appears to be correct, and it is baffling that it would work on Windows but not Ubuntu. I am going to attempt to upgrade R to 3.6.3 and see if that makes a difference.
