I have struggled with this problem through several upgrades and I have
not found a consensus of the best way to do it. There are quite a lot of
suggestions and advice if you search around using RSiteSearch().
I think the most straightforward answer I have found is described here:
I have not investigated fully - perhaps copydir is the way to go?
But my last upgrade I used this:
Look for the README and the part that describes the alternative to
"An alternative to copydir is to reinstall all packages
# Alternative to copydir.bat #1
# this example is for moving from 2.4.1 to 2.5.0
# run this in R 2.5.0
ip <- installed.packages(lib.loc = "../R-2.4.1/library")
ip <- ip[ip[,1]!="base" ,1]
I hope this helps.

Wonder if there is a way to upgrade R.
I'm currently using R 2.7.2, and wish to 'upgrade' to the latest one via
some process that doesn't make me reinstall all the packages again !!
Please let me know.
Thank you !
