You should set your preferences to expert mode on Ual.com. When searching, look for the "r" bucket. "R" shows upgradable space. If "r" is greater than 0, you can confirm the upgrade right away. Depending on your fare basis, the upgrade will cost a combination of miles and money.

How exactly do you do this? Does it show the fare classes when you're searching by doing this? That would be pretty helpful if it did.

1) you have to be signed in to your mileage plus account
2) click https://www.united.com/web/en-US/apps/account/preference/searchPreference.aspx
3) check box about expert mode, save at the bottom
4) search by price or schedule, award travel won't work when just checking buckets.
5) fare class will now be hyperlinked in results, click it

Say I book R class and then upgrade with points, am I still eligible to earn points since I at least paid the coach fare?
