How to install R programming language?

User_VH8NJ Member Posts: 3 Green Ribbon

Hello. I am coming from fedora and it is straight forward to install R language by using:-

"sudo dnf install R"

But in oracle linux I got the following error.

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo yum install R

Last metadata expiration check: 0:16:34 ago on Fri 19 Mar 2021 05:10:05 PM +04.


 Problem: package R-4.0.4-1.el8.x86_64 requires R-devel = 4.0.4-1.el8, but none of the providers can be installed

 - package R-devel-4.0.4-1.el8.x86_64 requires R-core-devel = 4.0.4-1.el8, but none of the providers can be installed

 - cannot install the best candidate for the job

 - nothing provides openblas-devel needed by R-core-devel-4.0.4-1.el8.x86_64

 - nothing provides texinfo-tex needed by R-core-devel-4.0.4-1.el8.x86_64

(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)

Note: I all ready installed the oracle-epel-release-el8.x86_64 rpm package, but the issue is the same .

Kindly advise me. And thank you.
