I installed Rstudio server on my ubuntu machine with R 3.5.1. If I try to open a new R notebook document it hangs. It also hangs if I try to install a new R package, showing the "retrieving package installation context" message. I am able to install packages from R on the command-line.
I'm not sure if this is related but the first time Rstudio server loaded, it gave to error messages on the R console:
- "Error in readRDS(dest) : error reading from connection"
- "Warning: unable to access index for repository https://cloud.r-project.org/src/contrib:
cannot open URL 'https://cloud.r-project.org/src/contrib/PACKAGES'"
Any ideas what might be happening?
