On launching LibreOffice from my terminal, I am getting this error

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I am using Gnome Desktop on Arch Linux and my current version of libreoffice is libreoffice-fresh 6.0.2-1 Here is the screenshot from my terminal.

Did you do a full system upgrade when installing LibreOffice? sudo pacman -Syu libreoffice-fresh

Arch packages are updated very frequently so it's easy to get a broken system if you don't upgrade all of it, e.g. if you've just run sude pacman -S libreoffice-fresh

(I'm running LibreOffice fresh on Arch also now and it works great.)
