Scratch Debian here. It works there:

It looks like Ubuntu failed to rebuild the package. The Rlapack.so vs
lapack.so is an old one from the Atlas 3.6 / gfortran transition well over a
year ago and had affected other package.
So on Ubuntu, uninstall r-cran-robustbase and re-install robustbase from CRAN
sources. And file a bug report with Ubuntu.

| This is really odd,

| Error: package/namespace load failed for 'robustbase'
| The package is where it is suposed to be:

| The problem is that if I try to install the source with
| install.packages("robustbase"), I get:
| gcc -std=gnu99 -shared -o robustbase.so R-rng4ftn.o init.o lmrob.o mc.o
