Suppose you have an running und full installed LO environment.

Now an update is available, lets say the Version V4.0.1.2

My Question: What is the correct or normal way of Updating?

I always do the following: - Download the update and also the new helpfiles - Uninstall the old LO Helpfiles - Uninstall the old LO Software, for example V4.0.0.3 - Install the new one, for example V4.0.1.2 - Install the new help files for the Update

I this correct like I do it?

You don't need to uninstall older version, just install new version of LibreOffice and it will be upgraded automatically. After that install help files if needed - help can also be accessed on-line.

Well, it depends on your platform, of course. I run different flavours of Ubuntu, and use the LibreOffice 4.0 PPA for managing updates. I also work in Windows (XP and 7), and in this case, I do the same as you: full downloads > uninstall current > install new.

Works for me ... though hardly convenient!
