For some reason, even though the command was correct, dpkg had some issue with it. I'm not sure why.

The issue here, I think, is how you constructed the command. Try...

Code:
sudo apt-get --purge remove r-base
Leave out the "< >"

Regards...

Question: What to do here?
Let's first see if the corrected command in my previous post will resolve the issue before we get into this.

Actually no window turns up typing in

It requires my master-password and then the cursor keeps blinking in the next line...

I'll quickly check about your story...

Your improved command works fine.

Code:
sudo apt-get --purge remove r-base
[sudo] password for arne: 
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhngigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.       
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
Package 'r-base' is not installed, so not removed
0 aktualisiert, 0 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 741 nicht aktualisiert.
Yet it becomes apparent that an r-base installation has not taken place on my Computer yet. Well, to install RStudio is the ultimate aim here. Dead line for the homework is the day after tomorrow. Lets see if I can resolve it by then...

Running

sudo dpkg --remove -force --force-remove-reinstreq r-base
the command line states in German that the two actions

-f (--field) und -r (--remove)
are in conflict with each other...

Wow, ok.

Does Synaptic show that "r-base" is installed?

A temporary idea that might work if you really need to get started on your homework is to run Linux Mint Quiana live (off of a CD/DVD or thumb drive,) and install R using Synaptic or through allend's link here, if that didn't work. You would use the link for "trusty." and choose the appropriate cran mirror between the "< >" Leave out the "< >" once you enter that information.

Regards...

No, I mean...

Code:
gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
Don't change anything. I'm just wondering if the following error message no longer appears...

Code:
(gedit:2827): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Datei /root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.M3R96X konnte nicht angelegt werden: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden

I managed to fix the update by changing my /etc/apt/sources.list. The list now looks like this

Code:
#deb cdrom:[Linux Mint 17 _Qiana_ - Release amd64 20140624]/ trusty contrib main non-free
deb https://cran.uni-muenster.de/bin/linux/ubuntu wily/
#deb http://cran.rstudio.com/linux
#deb http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/debian lenny-cran/
#deb https://<http://mirrors.softliste.de/cran/>/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/
"Update" now runs fine except for two little error messages regarding the cran mirror. I post the end of the update-code here which states that the error is with the second line of the /etc/apt/sources.list:

Code:
#deb cdrom:[Linux Mint 17 _Qiana_ - Release amd64 20140624]/ trusty contrib main non-free
deb https://cran.uni-muenster.de/bin/linux/ubuntu wily/
#deb http://cran.rstudio.com/linux
#deb http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/debian lenny-cran/
#deb https://<http://mirrors.softliste.de/cran/>/bin/linux/ubuntu trusty/
Question: How to change the /etc/apt/sources.list so installing r-base by

sudo apt-get install r-base

will work?

Synaptic states r-base related names are "not installed".
r-base, r-bioc-biobase [is this a new, healthy vegetable?], r-base-core-dbg:i386, r-base-core, r-base-html all appear in the Synaptic program as stated.

Hi...

You just put back the information I've spent time trying to guide you in removing?! You're putting in the wrong APT lines! You are most likely going to experience dependency problems doing it this way. Remove the ones you just put in and follow the instructions from allend's link.

I'm sorry, I can't continue to help if you're going to keep making changes apart from what I'm telling you to do.

Regards...
