Installing rJava package in R


I tried an R deployment where there are some rJava package requirements. The deployment build fails. How to fix it?

I'm getting errors, like:

checking whether Java run-time works... ./configure: line 3765: /usr/lib/jvm/default-java/bin/java: No such file or directory
configure: error: Java interpreter '/usr/lib/jvm/default-java/bin/java' does not work
ERROR: Configuration failed for package ‘rJava’


Your R library needs Java installed, this is not installed in UbiOps by default. Add a ubiops.yaml file to your deployment package (same level as your deployment.R) with the following content to install Java:

    - "default-jre"
    - "default-jdk"

Upload your deployment package to UbiOps. It should now be able to install rJava without problems.
