I've followed the instructions at several different how to sites:

I've installed R to various Ubuntu's before, including trusty, but recently
it has stopped working:

dhis at tmctpsql:~$ sudo apt-get install r-base-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 r-base-dev : Depends: r-base-core (>= but it is
not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Any ways around this? Does anyone else have issues with installing to a
brand new trusty install?
