Can no longer run latest R lang

Followed the instructions, from here to install the latest R:


sudo zypper addrepo -f \\ \\
sudo zypper in R-base

Unfortunately, as of today 2/19/2018, this command no longer works. It is looking for a new xdg-utils

Problem: nothing provides xdg-utils needed by R-patched-3.4.3-798.1.x86_64
 Solution 1: do not ask to install a solvable providing R-base
 Solution 2: break R-patched-3.4.3-798.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

Installing R-core is also broken. It is looking for libcairo:

Problem: nothing provides needed by R-core-3.4.3-798.1.x86_64
 Solution 1: do not install R-core-3.4.3-798.1.x86_64
 Solution 2: break R-core-3.4.3-798.1.x86_64 by ignoring some of its dependencies

You would need to take it up with the OBS maintainers for R…

I don’t see an R-base being built either?

They should be building against SLE 12 Backports as well, this may resolve the issue…
