It might all be stupid suggestions for many reasons. (I'm still on
emacs 26, and my ess-version is from January 2020). But it might be
useful for someone with better information than I have to help you.

- Does M-x R RET works with emacs "-Q" ?

--- in scratch
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/ess-20200115.225/")
(add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/elpa/julia-mode-20180816.2117")
(require 'ess-site)

then does M-x R RET works? Do you have auto-completion?

- Still on the "emacs -Q" version
when you load an R file, (say /tmp/test.R), does C-c C-s trigger any
response to start an R process?
