If the effect of an error is to return no result (as in your example), you can 
use a :post header-arg to check for a nil value in `*this*' and issue a 


#+name: check-res
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(or *this* (error "nil result")) 

#+begin_src R :exports both :post check-res()
  x <- fffff838293483$x8483848

See (info "(org) Results of Evaluation") and scroll to `post-processing' for 
details on the :post header.

The user-error halts export.
