[R] No "doc" directory in my installation of R.

Should/shouldn't there be one?
My R seems to be installed in /usr/lib/R. If do an "ls" of this
directory, I get:
> bin/ COPYING@ etc/ lib/ library/ modules/
> site-library/ SVN-REVISION
Definitely no "doc".
The (only) reason that I am concerned about this, is that I have decided
to experiment a bit with Rstudio, and it apparently wants a "doc"
directory. When I try to start Rstudio I get a pop-up window with the
> R doc dir (/usr/local/lib64/R/doc) not found.
Note that /usr/local/lib64/R is a symbolic link to /usr/lib/R.
The latter is where my installation put R; the former seems to be where
Rstudio wants it to. So I created the symbolic link.
The discrepancy between locations is another puzzle/worry.
My installation comes from a pre-built binary ("sudo apt install
r-base"). I apparently have the latest version. I remark that I am
running Ubuntu 20.04 with a Mate 1.20.4 desktop.
How can I get a "doc" directory into my R directory and make Rstudio
P.S. I have also tried to ask about this on the Rstudio community
forum, but it seems to me to more of an R question than an Rstudio one.
