so i deleted the calc part when i didn't use LibreOffice but since school started again i need to use it and i didn't have the calc so i went to terminal and typed in "sudo apt install LibreOffice-calc' and i even tried without the 'LibreOffice' part but still didn't work so does anyone know a way to reinstall it without reinstalling LibreOffice all together. btw i use debian if that helps

Not using Debian but Fedora. Here suite name is all lowercase in package names. The package name is thus libreoffice-calc. If that does not work, apt may have a query or list verb with a wildcard argument like libre* (this is how dnf works). Check the man page.

Usually package names are all lowercase (there are exceptions of course). You should try with libreoffice-calc (that's its name on my Fedora distro).

If this does not work, use your package manager in "query" mode (change the verb install to query or *list" (consult the man page). This query verb usually allows wildcard so that you can request information on all packages starting with some prefix like libre* or libreoffice*.
