To all my colleagues,
I have just migrated to linux OS from Windows. The OS I chose is Linux Mint 19.1 "Tessa". The built in R for the version is 3.4.4.
With that said, 3.4.4 has many incompatible packages (such as "car"), which often are prerequisite for subsequent packages. I have tried to look for ways to circumvent this problem, but there are quite a lot of packages which are only R =>3.5 compatible. Even some do not have archive for R <3.5.
I also looked into ways to remove (purge) R 3.4.4 from my system, but to no avail as a lot of the dir is different from ubuntu. Some Linux Mint forums also mentioned the instability of R > 3.5
May I know anyone using LinuxMint that has successfully upgrade to R >3.5? If so, can anyone please guide me to do it? Or is there anyway to circumvent this issue?
Thank you very much for your attention.
