Install R and RStudio on Ubuntu 12.04/14.04/16.04
Michael Galarnyk

Thanks for this article, made the installation smooth and easy. 
The current version of RStudio, as I write this reply, is 1.0.143. 
I ran the commands as given here, and when I launched RStudio, it gave a message that 1.0.143 is available. 
So I simply executed the last two commands with the latest version number and it was set.
$ sudo gdebi rstudio-1.0.143-amd64.deb
$ rm rstudio-1.0.143-amd64.deb

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
