You may find this blog post and the video instructive:


It illustrates how 'installing tidyverse' (or rstan) can be a single and done
in under two minutes == on Linux, with the appropriate distribution and
settings.  In short:  some have binaries prebuilt, some don't.

My blog has a few post in the 'r4' section on that as well as on other
approaches to this.


Now, you choose a somewhat non-standard distro. The price of that choice may
indeed be that you have to install everything (R/CRAN-related) from source. 

Hope this helps, Dirk
