Hello: I am the system administrator and tried to download the upgrade from LibreOffice 18.104.22.168 to LibreOffice 7.1.4. There is plenty of available space. Everything went smoothly until the manual download process asked if it could make changes to my device, a Windows 10 laptop. When I clicked “No” the download abruptly stopped. I am very security conscious and unwilling to allow device changes unless I fully understand their necessity. I was too caviler in the past and, if not for my malware protection, would have been burned. So, I am very cautious nowadays.
Why does Libre Office need to make changes to my device for a version upgrade? The answer may be obvious, and I may seem slow on the uptake, but I need to understand before acting. I appreciate any help you can provide.
