I suggest you report bugs as you find them.

If you are talking about statistical regression.

Then take a look at R

Website here:

If that's the sort of thing you are looking for you should be able to find it in the software centre.

If not you can install it from a command line with

    sudo apt-get install r-base

R is a command line program so to run it open a terminal and enter...

There is also a gui front end to R you can install with

    sudo apt-get install rkward

For more information on mathematics packages see here:

I suggest installing r-base (as explained above), and then RStudio.

RStudio has a more powerful interface than R.

You can get RStudio here:

I suggest installing and upgrading R library packages using RStudio.

Can you help with this problem?
