Yes, it appears so. You cannot use such an old version (binary) with
the current R. For the course it should not matter which version you
If you feel brave, you can try to compile the old version from sources
in the new R (download the source .tar.gz file and use R CMD INSTALL
to install it). It may not work because old versions are not designed
to work in new R versions, but you can try your luck if you really
can't live with the new version.
