That version of R happens to be "current" if using MRAN... which has some benefits (MKL comes pre-configured) and some... ah... "philosophical" ideas about stability (uses checkpoint package out of the box... which freezes packages at 2019-04-15 UTC unless actions are taken to use a different snapshot [1]). The OP may be "stuck in time" at Rcmdr 2.5-2 if they have not invoked checkpoint or adjusted the "repos" option... and if the latter then they may be encountering package incompatibilities with R 3.5.3 that should have been caught with a minimum R-version spec in the Rcmdr package.
