It's working for me on 6.2.4. In fact, it's quite strange that your DB is empty because by default it's preloaded with several (outdated) entries. Check if you have a valid java runtime environment under Tools → Options → LibreOffice → Advanced.

I already checked the Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Advanced that you suggest, it is checked the only one radio button, with vendor "Oracle Corporation" and Version of 1.8.0_212, its pointing to (the location) /usr/lib/jvmjava-8-openjdk-amd64/jre.

it seems just fine, but i dont know how to check it is valid or not. FYI when i checked the /usr/lib/jvm/ , i have two folder of java, java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64 and java-8-openjdk-amd64.

If LibO accept it, it should be valid. By the address it seems you are on Linux (good!). Check with your package manager if all LibreOffice related packages are installed: for example, *ubuntu usually does not install all Base related packages and that breaks the bibliographic database.

i checked the synaptic package manager and installed bibus and bibus-doc-en since it says "bibliographic database" in the description, with the keyword "libreoffice database" in the search bar, as you can see i'm already installed the libreoffice-base , base-core and, base-drivers, but after opening the libreoffice and start using bibliograpy database, it still doesnt change anything.., the insert -. record still can't be clicked.

See in Tools>Options, LibreOffice Base>DataBases rhe path for the Bibliography database. Then check file and directory permissions. Maybe write is not allowed.

@Ezrael Bibus is a different application. Check for a package called libreoffice-base or something similar.
