Recently had a very frustrating error on Proxmox (Debian) while trying to upgrade to R 3.4.2
The following packages have unmet dependencies: r-base-core : Depends: libjpeg8 (>= 8c) but it is not installable Depends: libpng12-0 (>= 1.2.13-4) but it is not installable Depends: libreadline6 (>= 6.0) but it is not installable Recommends: r-recommended but it is not going to be installed Recommends: r-base-dev but it is not going to be installed Recommends: r-doc-html but it is not going to be installed
The solution was to add a source
Then I added a line
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu trusty main
Alright, now the
W: GPG error: http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu trusty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B5 NO_PUBKEY 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 W: The repository 'http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu trusty Release' is not signed.
Alright…need to add the keys.
>gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B5 NO_PUBKEY 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 >gpg --export --armor 40976EAF437D05B5 | sudo apt-key add - >gpg --export --armor 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 | sudo apt-key add -
Uggggh, finally. Now we can install r-base-core and r-base-dev through the standard apt-get install and use RStudio v1.1. Woooo!!!!
