Using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I used to fetch my Libreoffice from the ppa repository http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/libreoffice-5-4/ubuntu and LO 5.4 worked as well as it could do.
I have then updated the repository to http://ppa.launchpad.net/libreoffice/ppa/ubuntu, which is not version-specific and proved to work well in another computer. I launched the classical
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade to fetch and install the latest LO version.
However, launching LO fails. If I do so from the command line I get the error notification
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/libmergedlo.so: undefined symbol: _ZN11LanguageTagC1ERKS_
libreoffice --version returns “LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 00m0(Build:2)”, so the upgrade has been successfull in some sense. I also tried to remove LO with
sudo apt-get remove libreoffice and reinstalling with the latest settings again. This error is persistent.
What is the cause and fix for this issue? Thanks for helping out
