How to Update R Software

R software can be easily updated with "installr" package.
install.packages('installr')
library("installr")
updateR() 
The dialog box will be opened to take you through the following steps -
  1. It checks for a newer version of R. 
  2. If one exists, the function will download the most updated R version and run its installer.
  3. Once done, the function will offer to copy (or move) all of the packages from the old R library to the new R library. 
  4. It will then offer to update the moved packages, offer to open the new Rgui, and lastely, it will quit the old R.
