Re: 'Installation of package <package> had non-zero exit, > status' on R-3.2.0 (RStudio Version 0.98.1103) on Ubuntu 12.04 OS

Prof J C Nash (U30A)
As another post has suggested, r-sig-debian may be more help.

However, it looks like you need to install a different package from the
one you tried. See

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1774516

about getting libcurl on 12.04.

FYI Ubuntu 12.04 is now getting dated, and I've found people using it
get similar problems to that you encountered -- i.e., packages that more
up to date distros use are not available, or those that are available
don't have all the features needed. Maybe time to upgrade.
