@nessuno Well, the most recent icu is v62.1 so maybe that the reason why the fix does not work for you? Other libraries (including r-mkl) using icu need to be reinstalled after an icu update to work with the most recent version.

Anyways, r-mkl does not have any responsibility here so the discussion is actually off-topic.

The package glibc-fix-r-and-electron-git doesn't solve the problem for me. Anyway the solution I proposed before works. Moreover, I also uploaded a new AUR package "icu61" to solve the problem of the libraries request. If anyone have a better and more proper solution for these problems, please let me know.

Install this hotfix version of glibc-2.28 and you can use R again without problems and also upgrade all other libraries again:

Thanks to an advice on the rstudio-desktop-bin package page I solved the aforementioned problem through


But now I've also another problem, since the is required. I saw there are other older icu versions on AUR, but the 61 is lacking. Is there anyone that is able to help me.

Thank you very much as always

Thanks so much for the help

@nessuno, probably something related to glibc.

After the last update of the package I have this errore when I try to install sparklyr

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::runtime_error'
  what():  Mutex creation failed
/usr/lib64/R/bin/INSTALL: line 34: 10596 Done                    echo 'tools:::.install_packages()'

Someone is able to help me in understanding what it means and how to solve it?

Thanks so much!

The new types defined in GCC 7 (_Float32, _Float32x, etc) seems to caused the problem.
