How do i manually update to the latest version?

Hi, i have (on Linux Mint) and would like to get 7.1.4. The help says i can manually check for updates by going to Help - Check for Updates but there is no such option under the Help menu. Nor is there anything about updates under Tools - Options. Do i need to download the .tar then un- and re-install from that?

On Linux, use official repos.

Linux repos contain their own builds of LibreOffice, created by their respective maintainers; and since the package management systems on Linux provide independent update mechanism (not dependent on LibreOffice project creating a release, but rather dependent on the respective maintainer creating their updated package), the check for update is removed there from LibreOffice.

Either use your OS update facilities (and trust your OS maintainers in their judgement on when to upgrade and to what version - maybe they have some idea how it is well-tested or not), or remove the OS-supplied version, and use TDF packages (and then you will not have your OS native support for updates).

Another option is to add libreoffice ppa and redo the installation

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:libreoffice/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade -y

thanks, that did the trick, easier than i feared too :slight_smile:
