I try to open LibreOffice and I get:

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/ undefined symbol: _ZN11LanguageTagC1ERKS_

This was after I added the LO PPA and try to install the latest version. Same error happened then, so I removed all the LO packages and went back to the Ubuntu version.

Please report that to the PPA; and don't forget (as you did here) to include the Ubuntu version you are using, and the PPA version.

I am using Debian testing version and I faced with this problem. This solution worked for me.

Same here, but new to the platform, so I can not upvote it.

After a couple of hours, this is the only way I could fix the problem:

I purged LibreOffice: sudo apt-get purge libreoffice*

And then I deleted the /usr/lib libreoffice directory: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program

Did an autoremove: sudo apt-get autoremove

Then reinstalled: sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Now LibreOffice appears to be working properly.

I did this but I also had to install the package 'uno-libs3' afterwards due to the file missing.
