First, this is not a bug with R at all; only a difficulty you have  
with installing the r-base package.

Second, this does not belong to r-devel, but to r-sig-debian. Hence  
the discussion is moved to the latter forum.

Now, did you follow the instructions in the Ubuntu README at


? What is the result of

	apt-cache policy r-base


We should be able to help you with this information.
