Hi Dirk,

I didn't capture the output but using Focal I got an error with RcppParallel trying to open a file that wasn't found, and plotly::ggplot() would not render a ggplot graph.

20.10 is working well for me otherwise.

Just continue to point to the focal ("20.04") repos.  They _will_ run because 
this is the standard "forward compatible" mode.  Binaries built on older 
systems almost always run on newer ones (unless an explicit break happened, 
which is rare), just the reverse is not true. 
It's not unlike your packages from the previous R version in /usr/local still 
working when you upgrade R. 
How's 20.10 otherwise? I usually wait about a little "just to let some things 
shake out" but will likely upgrade in a month or two. 
Hope this helps,  Dirk
