Same here. Home now, and fired up the (older) laptop I converted. R runs
fine, both the pre-trusty version I had and the trusty version once I updated
the sources.list entry. That was with 32bit.

I stronly suspect a local issue. 

We would have heard from more than one user methinks.  We will try to help
but it does not look systemic to me or Michael.
