LibreOffice doesn't serve any installer from its site. If it would, then there were never such a problem (unless user has connection problems, of course). But that's impossible, because that would put such a huge load on TDF servers that they'd just go out of service.

Instead, TDF relies on public mirrors, which are randomly chosen from by a service. And those mirrors, owned by external parties, unfortunately aren't always configured to properly report the MSI's ContentType. This e.g. may make your browser to believe that MSI is actually text file, and modify it while downloading.

The problem is tdf#53241 (see comment 9 for current state).
