Finally trying again. Running R from ess in the usual way, but after M-x
toggle-debug-on-error, hangs, but seems to work after C-g. Content of
buffer *Backtrace*:  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable
ess-noweb-mode)      Content of buffer *ESS*:

(R): ess-dialect=R, buf=debiasing_logistic.R, start-arg=nil
(inf-ess 1): lang=S, dialect=R, tmp-dialect=R, buf=debiasing_logistic.R
(inf-ess 1.1): procname=R temp-dialect=R, buf-name=*R*
(inf-ess 2.0) Method #3 start=/home/kjetil/proyectos/R_ejemplo_knitr buf=*R*
(inf-ess 2.1): ess-language=S, ess-dialect=R buf=*R*
(inferior-ess: waiting for process to start (before hook)

(Also, when trying to quit with C-c-q it hangs, but unhangs then with C-g)

Trying again, but now with --vanilla and  M-x toggle-debug-on-error : Now
it works without problems!

And, yes, I did change my prompts. Here is the content of my .Rprofile file:

options(continue="  ")
options(prompt="  ")
options(defaultPackages=c(getOption("defaultPackages"), "MASS"))
local({r <-
          getOption("repos"); r["CRAN"] <- "http://cran.uib.no/";
          options(repos = r);
          if (interactive()) fortunes::fortune()

The ess version can be seen from
emacs version is This is GNU Emacs 26.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu,
GTK+ Version 3.22.8)
 of 2017-02-28
