As detailed in this post, I recently installed Ubuntu on my old MacBookPro (assuming a MacBookPro from mid-2012 is old 😏). In order to run some simulations I needed to install the latest version of R. I first followed the procedure to install the latest R on Debian before realizing that the backport for Ubuntu are different 😁! So if you are on Ubuntu, the correct link to install the latest R is here. The 3-steps-procedure is pretty straight forward:

  1. add
deb bionic-cran35
  1. add the key used to sign the archives on CRAN:
$ apt-key adv --keyserver --recv-keys E298A3A825C0D65DFD57CBB651716619E084DAB9
  1. install R
$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install r-base

That’s all folks!
