Dear all,

It should be very easy to upgrade R with macOS (Mojave). Since I am not familiar with macOS and I do not have an iMac (just running macOS under VirtualBox), I used to be afraid to do this. So I stayed with R v3.5.1 for a while. But recently, I feel much comfortable now. Here is steps:
  1. Delete the previous R with two commands under a terminal:
    $ rm -rf /Applications/R.app
    $ sudo rm -rf /Library/Frameworks/R.framework
  2. Install new R (R-x.x.x.pkg) and re-install gfortan_6.1.pkg (it is required; obtained it from CRAN mirror): Remember to install R first followed by gfortran_6.1.pkg. This is because gfortran will install some fortran/C/C++ header files into /R.framework; so we have to do it again;
  3. Re-install RGtk2 and cairoDevice package as previous post;
  4. Re-run source(“preinst.r”) under R console;
  5. Re-install bear package.
That's it.

All the best,
