Unable to upgrade R from 3.4.3 to 3.5.1

Would like to upgrade our R, Rstudio and fresh install of Launcher.

  • While try to upgrade R from version 3.4.3 to 3.5.1, it is failing because of dependency rpm packages. Unable to locate the dependent RPMs of R-3.5.1-1.el7.x86_64.rpm for Redhat 7.x version.
  • Currently R-3.4.3 version is available in same test environment and Rstudio 1.1.453.
  • Dependent RPMs which are not available in repos: R-java-3.5.1-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, R-java-devel-3.5.1-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, libRmath-devel-3.5.1-1.el7.x86_64.rpm, R-core-3.5.1-1.el7.x86_64.rpm
  • I knew there is R 3.6.0 is available, but our production environment currently have R 3.5.1. Hence we need to test in this Launcher in R 3.5.1 version.

Where did you get the currently installed versions from? It is easy to build R from source if you need a fixed version of it. You might have to uninstall the system version first, c.f. Compiling R from source in /opt/R. Alternatively you can use the RStudio provided binaries that are available for many versions of R.
