I was watching Episode 5 recently and something strange come to my eye. When Luke arrives at Dagobah it seems that neither Yoda and R2D2 seems to remember each other.

As far as I know R2D2 never had a memory wipe according to Star Wars wikis and this question: Why was C-3PO's memory wiped, but not R2-D2's?

I don't know if R2D2 knew Yoda personally but he should have known him. For Yoda it maybe was just another R2 unit.

Is there a universe (Legends or extended) explanation why R2D2 seem to doesn't know him?

    Don’t start looking for inconsistencies between the prequels and original trilogy, you’ll never stop finding them. You’ll equally find as many fan theories trying to hand-wave them away. The only one you need though is that Lucas just didn’t care enough/was a good enough film maker.
