Upgrading R and RStudio

Although the old version served well, it is still nice to see these two brothers getting upgraded.

The RStudio is upgraded first.

wget https://download2.rstudio.org/rstudio-server-0.99.891-amd64.deb
sudo apt-get install gdebi-core
sudo gdebi rstudio-server-0.99.891-amd64.deb

For reason unknown to me the R came installed is an very old one (back to 2013). So a more recent R is installed manually. The following commands will stop RStudio for the upgrade (and the last one to restart).

sudo rstudio-server offline
sudo rstudio-server force-suspend-all
sudo rstudio-server online

However, for my installation that does not work. The thing that worked is log in to RStudio and then use “Session > Restart R”.

A fresh start of R / RStudio!
