Problem with installing RSTudio server on Centos Linux 7


I currently struggle with installing RSTudio server on a VM running Centos Linux 7. I would be very happy to get your input, as I haven't found comparable problems so far.

I found a nice instruction on:

After running downloading:

and then:
sudo yum install --nogpgcheck rstudio-server-rhel-1.0.136-x86_64.rpm -y

I get the following: 
Running transaction
  Installing : rstudio-server-1.0.136-1.x86_64                                                                                                                             1/1 
Error unpacking rpm package rstudio-server-1.0.136-1.x86_64
error: unpacking of archive failed on file /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/pandoc/pandoc;5dbc34c3: cpio: write
  Verifying  : rstudio-server-1.0.136-1.x86_64                                                                                                                             1/1 
  rstudio-server.x86_64 0:1.0.136-1

As an alternative I downloaded RStudio server as recommended on the website:

But it only loads until 94% and the says:

Saving to: 'rstudio-server-rhel-1.2.5001-x86_64.rpm'

94% [=============================================================================================================================>        ] 46,443,580  18.7MB/s   in 2.4s   

Cannot write to 'rstudio-server-rhel-1.2.5001-x86_64.rpm' (Success).

From there I can't continue.

Some information on my operating system:

NAME="CentOS Linux"

VERSION="7 (Core)"


ID_LIKE="rhel fedora"


PRETTY_NAME="CentOS Linux 7 (Core)"

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot in advance,


It looks like the download itself is failing for some reason -- either due to network connectivity issues, or perhaps disk space.
