Have this problem sometimes as well (even in, have to use this version because of this version of the mail merge function)
it seems to be a file locking problem:
When having a spreadsheet open, then trying to open a merge document that accesses to an LO Base address query as data spirce I get the 'can't find the JRE...' error.
close all files, exit LO
open LO Base address query
try to edit the query (here would apear the JRE error message)
[save, if edited] close query
save query (important, to write the modifications to the files)
[close LO Base]
load merge document (LO Writer)
Tools / Options / LibreOffice / Advanced / Activate 'Use a Java runtime environment'
after a few seconds the JRE entry apears
and everything works fine

If you downloaded your JRE with Internet Explorer, it might have
downloaded the 32bit version because some versions of IE are 32bit even
on W10 (don't ask me why, I don't know). Clearly a 32bit version of JRE
won't work with 64bit LO.

To be honest, I don't recommend downloading just the JRE - I would
rather suggest you get a current 64bit Java JDK instead, unzip that to a
path/directory to which LO has read/write permissions, and then retry
the Java environment recognition setup from within LO. Just my 2c.
