For each of the major packages you will be asked to confirm that it is okay to install it. This could take up to 5 minutes.

Included is the R Statistical Software package.

As the instructions will suggest, run the following to immediately turn on tab expansion for mlhub commands and model names. This will be available anyhow on the next login.

$ source /etc/bash_completion.d/ml.bash

This will ensure all of the required dependencies for using MLHub are installed on your computer, including both Python and R and some of the basic common packages for both of them.
