How do i update R on Cent OS


I am having issues finding a way to Update R on CentOS.

I ran "yum remove R" and returned a successful message. But when i type R it still loads up the R environment.

Do i need to remove it another way first, before updating? I'm Running R Version 2.15.2

  • You should be able to just run the following to update your R distribution.

    yum update R

    Further details are needed if you are having additional problems. Or try removing all the R components separately as noted by @TARehman.

    Note - this all assumes you don't need sudo privileges otherwise you would need to make some administrative requests if you aren't the owner of the machine.
