Attempting to install latest ( on Centos-7 (Linux). it didn't want to install, so I uninstalled previous and it still won't. when I type "sudo yum localinstall *.rpm" it spews the names of all the files, followed by "nothing to do".

I've done "yum clean all" but it didn't help.

Anyone got any good ideas?

thanks in advance!


editing to respond to Opaque: no, there are no libreoffice or libobasis RPMS installed. already checked, my apology for forgetting to say so in original post.

$ sudo rpm -qa | grep -i libreoffice $

$ ls -l /opt | grep -i libreoffice drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 32 Mar 31 2017 libreoffice5.1 $ ls -l /opt | grep -i libreoffice^C $ ls /opt/lib1/ /opt/libreoffice5.1/program: __pycache__ python-core-3.5.0

/opt/libreoffice5.1/share: extensions $

$ ls -l /bin/libreoffice* ls: cannot access /bin/libreoffice: No such file or directory $ ls /bin/libre ls: cannot access /bin/libre*: No such file or directory $

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


If there is a nothing to do message this means, that it may be already installed. Please show us output of

  • rpm -qa | grep -i libreoffice
  • ls -l /opt | grep -i libreoffice
  • ls -l /bin/libreoffice*

  • On Linux systems a deinstallation of previous version is not required. Different versions install into different directories in /opt.
  • You may face a rare situation of a corrupted rpm database (but before rebuilding that database all other reasons should be checked and elliminated).

Your system seems a bit messed up - I have performed a test on my CentOS 7 test system using your procedure and it worked like a charm. I would perform a forced installation now by executing:

sudo rpm -Uhv --force --nodeps *.rpm

and perform the checks from my first comment above.
