On a laptop using Ubuntu 18.04.2LTS, I am trying to install the most up to date "Still" version of LibreOffice, which is 6.1.6. Currently I have I downloaded the right Debian version but it won't install. In the past, on Windows 7, it installed itself automatically when I opened up the file. How do I make that happen on a machine running Ubuntu? There are a lot of .deb files but no executable file that I can identify. How do I get it to install and update itself?

Thanks. P

After you extract the files, point to the DEBS directory in terminal. Then run sudo dpkg -i *.deb

To remove old sudo apt-get remove --purge libreoffice6*. Best to perform first.

You might also consider PPA but I believe it is 'Fresh' version.

... and there are also PPAs for other versions: 6.2, 6.1, etc.
