The present work is the first one of two papers, in which we analyse systems of higher order variational equations associated to natural Hamiltonian systems with homogeneous potential of degree $k\in\mathbb{Z}\setminus \{-1,0,1\}$. Our attempt is to give necessary conditions for complete integrability which can be deduced in a framework of differential Galois theory. We show that the higher variational equations $\mathrm{VE}_p$ of order $p\geq 2$, although complicated, have a very particular algebraic structure. More precisely, we show that if $\mathrm{VE}_1$ has virtually Abelian differential Galois group (DGG), then $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$ are solvable for an arbitrary $p>1$. We proved this inductively using what we call the second level integrals. Then we formulate the necessary and sufficient conditions in terms of these second level integrals for $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$ to be virtually Abelian. We apply the above conditions to potentials of degree $k=\pm 2$ considering their $\mathrm{VE}_p$ with $p>1$ along Darboux points. For $k= 2$, $\mathrm{VE}_1$ does not give any obstruction to the integrability. We show that under certain non-resonance condition, the only degree two integrable potential is the multidimensional harmonic oscillator. In contrast, for degree $k=-2$ potentials, all the $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$ along Darboux points are virtually Abelian.
