I am unable to update the R version in the qiime2 virtual machine. Currently I am running R 3.3 and would like to upgrade to 3.4. Tried everything but couldn’t succeed. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi @sourav! Unfortunately, R 3.3 is a requirement for QIIME 2 right now, which is why we ship with that version. You could always create a new
conda environment and install a newer version of
R there, if you wish:
# this first one is to unload the environment loaded by default in the VirtualBox builds $ source deactivate $ conda create -n my-r-3.4-env $ source activate my-r-3.4-env $ conda install r
You could also run a different VirtualBox VM and install
R there, too (the VM doesn’t have to be the QIIME 2 VM!).
Hope that helps!
Thank you, it helps enormously!
