Errors were encountered while processing: rstudio

Hello, I am trying to install RStudio on my Ubuntu 20.04 laptop amd64, using the "rstudio-2022.07.2-576-
amd64.deb" file from terminal:

sudo dpkg -i rstudio-2022.07.2-576-amd64.deb

When I try to install it, the console gives the message :

I am using Ubuntu 20.04 and am trying to install the latest version of R Studio available for Ubuntu. I was able to install R without any difficulty.

There might be a very easy solution or I may be doing the installation wrong. I am both new to Ubuntu and R.

Thank you very much for your help.
Best Regards

I suspect you are simply using the wrong installer, try with this link

Also, you could try with gdebi to handle any missing dependency

sudo gdebi studio-2022.07.2-576-amd64.deb

Thanks, I solved it by following this:
