[Rd] ubuntu software updater clash with with cloud.r-project

This seems the most appropriate place to report this.

I just updated my ubuntu to 18.04.  And installed R by adding the line to /etc/apt/source.list:   deb ... cloud.r-project ... bionic-cran35/
R installed just fine.
However, my ubuntu software update would not finish correctly any more.  Failed to access ... check internet connection   (internet connection was just fine.)

Commented out the line in sources.list and software update runs just fine now.

So if I want to use apt to get packages, I'll have to uncomment the line, get the packages, and then comment it out again?  Seems like a bug, but not part of any R package.
