The upgrade should be trivial as long as your system is properly setup - simply run

update.packages(ask=FALSE, checkBuilt=TRUE)

that works for all packages. If that fails then either R or Java on your system are not setup properly.

Instructions for installing JGR from scratch on SuSE are at

If all that doesn't help all I can say if you want easier setup get a more user-firendy distro or system ;).
