This problem has been around for a LONG time, in many versions of LibreOffice. I just upgraded to a clean version of LibreOffice (64) on my Windows 7 machine, and still need to move or resize my charts to get them to update. I've tried F9 and <cntl><shift>F9 and whatever other key combinations I could think of and have never been able to get the chart to update without sliding it around a bit.

My spreadsheets are large and complicated, with one sheet feeding another sheet to do calculations, and that sheet feeding graphs on yet a third sheet. Perhaps the way I set them up is the root of the problem. Perhaps the problem is associated with using a spreadsheet made several generations ago?

Are other users still having this problem, or do I need to somehow redo my spreadsheets to make it go away?

Hardware is dell precision T1500 with NVidia Quadro 4000 graphics card.

Partial solution--tools;options;LibreOffice;view;Use OpenGL for all rendering. Turning on OpenGL reduced the incidence of non-update greatly. I have one graph this morning that will not update a label until dragged, but other than that it has worked flawlessly, even with graphs using data from multiple sheets and which were copied and pasted within the same sheet they were created on. More testing to follow.
