| On internet, it is said that this library was discontinued

| R is up and running instead:
| ```
| $ R
| R version 4.0.1 (2020-06-06) -- "See Things Now"
| Copyright (C) 2020 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing
| Platform: x86_64-pc-linux-gnu (64-bit)

| How can I launch studio then?

You appear to have asked the wrong part of the internet. If you go to


and search for 'libssl1.0.0', selecting "all" distributions, and "search
package name", you get the page


suggesting downloads of the package from two LTS releases (and two updates
within). Download the file eg

  cd /tmp
  wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/o/openssl1.0/libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.3_amd64.deb
  sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.2n-1ubuntu5.3_amd64.deb

Lastly, you asked _on the wrong mailing list_. Questions for R use on Debian
or Ubuntu (or derived) systems should got to r-sig-debian instead. It is a
friendly place.
