I don't know how to upgrade R to the latest version on linux mint 19 tara. The version I have right now is R 3.4.4, which doesn't let me install a lot of packages.
Welcome to the community!
I really should not answer this question, as I experienced Linux (Ubuntu, actually) for the first time not even a week ago. I'm sharing what I did to have the latest version of R there, and I hope it'll work in Linux Mint too.
- Open the terminal.
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys E298A3A825C0D65DFD57CBB651716619E084DAB9to add the GPG key
sudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://cloud.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu bionic-cran35/'to add the R repository
sudo apt-get updateto update the package list
sudo apt-get install r-baseto install the R package
sudo apt-get install r-base-devto compile packages from source
This is the relevant documentation.
Linux Mint 19 is based on Ubuntu Bionic so it is very likely that works
