I religiously turn off R_LIBS_USER in /etc/R/Renviron to avoid that [1]. I
recommended to everybody who cares to listen to do the same.

If you do that, your path becomes

R> .libPaths()
[1] "/usr/local/lib/R/site-library" "/usr/lib/R/site-library"       "/usr/lib/R/library"           

and all local installations go into the first of those three directories and
survive upgrades.

Hth, Dirk

[1] And for a while had this globally turned in the official Debian and hence
Ubuntu package but then the regexp broke.
