Information found here is reproduced from <http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10476713/how-to-upgrade-r-in-ubuntu> and from <http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/#secure-apt>
<<Follow the instructions from <http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/>
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
This will open up your sources.list file in gedit, where you can add the following line.
deb http://cran.cnr.berkeley.edu/bin/linux/ubuntu/ version/
deb http://<favourite-cran-mirror>/bin/linux/debian jessie-cran3/ #(might also be added to support R3.3)
Replace version/ with whatever version of Ubuntu you are using (eg, precise/, oneric/, trusty/ and so on). If you're getting a "Malformed line error", check to see if you have a space between /ubuntu/ and version/.
- Fetch the secure APT key with
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key E084DAB9or
gpg --hkp://keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-key E084DAB9
- Feed it to
apt-key with gpg -a --export E084DAB9 | sudo apt-key add -
- Update your sources and upgrade your installation with
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
Since R is already installed, you should be able to upgrade it with this method.
Note that you don't have to necessarily use the Berkeley mirror. You may get a list of all mirrors here : http://cran.r-project.org/mirrors.html>>
