Libreoffice writer + impress + all the rest (can't update)

Can’t update any of these?Any suggestions?

As you wrote elsewhere Raspberry pi 4 B libreoffice version you are most likely on linux and the software-center of your distribution will handle updates (often hiding the tool apt, if the distribution is based on debian).

And “elsewhere” is

To update a question

  • Click the pencil icon at the bottom of your question to edit it
  • Click the ellipsis (three dots) at the bottom of your question for other options.

For more information check out This is the guide - How to use the Ask site?

Iasked a question with the relevant information and all I get in return is complaints rather than an answer.Whatever next?

This site is almost ass hard to use as linux is for me a noob.Why do I even bother?

Sorry, I didn’t understand your question. I thought it might have been how to update your other questions on this site.

  • What are your trying to do? Update LibreOffice?
  • What have you done so far?
  • What is not working?

Please read this thread, and check where you gave “relevant information”…

Updating software depends on the OS. And we don’t know which OS you use. (Even Win10 is available for Raspberry, I heard…). For Linux the question is Raspian or any other Linux. You could use a LibreOffice from your distribution or have installed from TDF - but judging your question doesn’t make it likely you installed anything yourself.
So my suggestion would be to google for raspberry pi update LibreOffice and maybe you find a less hard to use site.
But for raspbian usually updates come automatically via apt. If you need faster updates than your linux-distribution provides, than you have to install yourself. Good luck and bye.

Note that @O_Neill responds by mail; so they likely don’t even imagine there are threads here, and here is something unclear in the fragmental and vague individual messages they sent here… :slight_smile:

So we can close this thread.

Please, please, organise your mind. Think before posting. This site is not a forum where you open a thread and follow chronologically a conversation. This is not Twitter, either, where you post very short spontaneous messages. It is a Question & Answers site where the site engine reorders answers by relevance, thus breaking chronological order. Fortunately it does not do so on comments.

Avoid multiple one-line comments. Contrary to forums, post here are editable so that you can improve them and group all necessary and relevant information in a single location.

Be friendly to contributors who are users like you (well, they usually have more experience with LO than you). They participate on their free time and skim quickly over question without going into details on long topics. The shorter and clearer the topic, the better your chances to get a good answer. But, once again, this requires you can describe your case clearly and neatly, in international English (most of us are not English-native), for people who can’t see your computer and, happily enough, can’t enter into your mind. Sometimes, we use crystal balls but, from time to time, they are sent back for maintenance to the wizardry shop.


With 20+ years of physical and mental health problems that are getting worse organising anything is a struggle

Try to find somebody near you who can visit you and help you to fix this. If you don’t know anyone, try to get help from local institutions who can put people in need of help in touch with volunteers who offer help. The Netherlands has lots of websites where people offer help or ask for help, some local, some for the entire country. There’s bound to be something like that where you live.

The Netherlands?I live in Scotland friend

I can only hope that people in Scotland aren’t too different from the Durch when it comes to helping others.
