| Java is definitely installed on this machine — from a terminal:

| 	java version "13.0.1" 2019-10-15
| 	Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 13.0.1+9)

I have seen this happen when the Java settings changed from a different
version which can happen.  The common fix is to

   R CMD javareconf

to updated R's settings about Java. (This step also happens when you rebuild
R; but rebuilding R is typically not required; we just want updated Java

If that is done, and your Java installation is otherwise sufficient then

   R CMD INSTALL rJava_*tar.gz

(or equally from within R)  should do the trick.
