Please define "would not run". Crash? Not start? Any message? Any message
on the terminal? More info is helpful.

Which of course wouldn't do anything given the package just drops files
into LOs extension directory and only does tell LO to reread stuff by a simple
touch to go sure (via libreoffice-commons triggers)...

Huh? What? That is the *JVM* (aka the Oracle JDK), not the report builder.
The report builder would be shows in Tools -> Extensions.

Maybe something implicitely changed somewhere? (Maybe not even in LO but in
Java stuff LO depends on.)
