I am new in Linux and R, trying to update packages I need in my work,
but repeatedly I failed for reasons I do not understand.
First, I use:
Then, I choose nearest mirror and accept update of 'Design' package:
> Design :
> Version 2.0-9 installed in /usr/lib/R/site-library
> Version 2.0-12 available at http://cran.r-mirror.de
> Update (y/N/c)? y
Finally, after successful download, installation starts and fails:
> trying URL 'http://cran.r-mirror.de/src/contrib/Design_2.0-12.tar.gz'
> Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 329401 bytes

I am using following R under Ubuntu - Linux:
platform = "i386-pc-linux-gnu"
arch = "i386"
os = "linux-gnu"
system = "i386, linux-gnu"
major = "2"
minor = "2.1"
year = "2005"
month = "12"
day = "20"
"svn rev" = "36812"
language = "R"
I would be really thankful if anyone could give me explanation of what I
am doing wrong and how can I make update.
