I have been trying to update our existing R installation on Ubuntu 18.04.6 LTS (amd64) from R 4.2.0 to R 4.2.1. From our CRAN mirror (https://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/CRAN/bin/linux/ubuntu/) I can see that only the latest LTS release remains fully supported (that would be 22.04 at the time of writing). Nevertheless, for focal (20.04 LTS) at https://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/CRAN/bin/linux/ubuntu/focal-cran40/ r-base and r-base-dev are available in 4.2.1 but not for bionic (18.04 LTS) https://ftp.belnet.be/mirror/CRAN/bin/linux/ubuntu/bionic-cran40/.  

I was wondering if the deb will become available for 18.04? 
I have been able, on another 18.04 system, to install R 4.2.1 using an Rstudio provided deb with gdebi as described on  https://docs.rstudio.com/resources/install-r/ , but that takes R out of the regular package management with apt.
