You should be able to no problem. Maybe something else is going on.

What else could be going on? As Ive always been able to jump start cars in the past? Im just baffled is there a fuse that may have blown?

It could be any number of things... what year car is this? Are you trying to jump from the posts or 2004-5 auxiliary post? When was the last time it was running? Have you checked all the relevant fuses? When you put the leads on the posts are you getting interior power?

you should remove the battery and charge it for 4 hours at 6 amps,
then let it sit for a few hours to normalize then test it.

NOTE jumping the battery thats in a very low state of charge could also damage the charging system.
The alternator diodes and the BCM can be damaged from voltage spikes

Andy, we have no idea of your location or the year of your Rover. Please read the forum guidelines before posting further.

As an example, we have been below freezing at night. I've not driven one of my Rovers since Thanksgiving. The battery was very flat. It is currently on the bench getting a long slow 2 amp charge.

You have not blown a fuse. If your battery is flat dead by all means remove it and park it on a bench or counter top, never on a concrete floor.
