When Ubuntu is released then all of the software it is released with is frozen and only fixes related to that frozen version is updated for security or bugs.

If you would like to have a LibreOffice v4.1 installed on Ubuntu you need to add PPA.
1. Open Terminal with pressing CTRL+ALT+T.
2. Copy bellow command and paste to terminal and press Enter to add libreoffice-4-1 PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-1
3. Then copy bellow command to update software to new version:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade
