Just uninstalled r-base-core ("complete removal" in Synaptic, which 
means that configuration files are removed also).
After that,
dpkg --get-selections | grep r-base

was giving no output
dpkg --get-selections | grep r-cran
r-cran-abind                    deinstall
r-cran-effects                    deinstall
r-cran-relimp                    deinstall

So I removed these 3 with apt-get -remove

Then I installed with apt-get:

sudo apt-get install r-base
sudo apt-get install r-base-dev
sudo apt-get install robustbase

No error messages.  But I started R and got the same error:

 > require(robustbase)
Loading required package: robustbase
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
  unable to load shared library 
  libRlapack.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

What else can be done if everything was removed and installed back again?
Is there any reason to think that installing R from sources is going to 
solve the problem?
