I noticed that R 4.0.0 is now available for ubuntu on CRAN. I attempted to
do a clean install on 18.04 using:

sudo apt install r-base

after adding

deb https://cloud.r-project.org/bin/linux/ubuntu bionic-cran40/

to /etc/apt/sources.list.

Unfortunately, apt reports that r-recommend is a dependency and it won't be
installed. Upon inspecting the R4.0 repos r-recommend is missing not only
for bionic but also for xenial and focal. It is exists for the 3.5 Repos
and seems to exist in the Debian R4.0 variants. Perhaps it was missed or is
it still syncing across?
