I use OpenOffice, but got curious why so many Linux users and distributions are more into LibreOffice, so I downloaded it to check it out. When I tried to install it (a while back) I got an error message that said some conflict with files also used by Open Office was encountered. Ever since I can't install, remove, update or upgrade anything. I have tried the solutions suggested here, here and here but no solution and things keep me running in circles. Here's what I get when I tried autoremove, purge and autoclean: And when I ran the fix-broken install I got this:
So I'm back to square one. Can't re-install or remove it, and can't ignore it either because it prevents me from installing or removing other stuff and even from updating the system (there are already 50 system components waiting in line in the AppCenter to be updated).
Any help is welcome. Thanks.
I downloaded OpenOffice from their official site short after I installed elementary, it never gave me any problem, and still works fine. It's the LibreOffice that's causing me all this trouble. I downloaded it from their site too (more than one month after OpenOffice, but I didn't install it immediately, and by the time I did -- and I don't recall this part so clearly -- I think I had learned already that it's in the repository and installed from there (or maybe I learned that short after installing the download version, I don't know anymore for sure). Anyway, the file I downloaded is still in the downloads directory and is called LibreOffice_6.3.3_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz
