[Bug 1483183] Re: Error upgrading LibreOffice 4.4.5 to 5.0 by ppa:libreoffice/ppa on Ubuntu 12.04


We'd need to know which package is preventing the update, please use
e.g. apt-get on the command line to find out.

Note that LibreOffice from the PPAs is not _officially_ supported

** Changed in: libreoffice (Ubuntu)

  Error upgrading LibreOffice 4.4.5 to 5.0 by ppa:libreoffice/ppa on
  Ubuntu 12.04

Status in libreoffice package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The ppa has been installed by apt one and a half years ago. The
  updates are managed by update_manager, the standard tool used by
  standard ubuntu installations. In past time updating LibreOffice by
  this ppa always was successfull without any error messages.

  This behaviour changed last week when the ppa was upgraded to version
  5.0. Now in update_manager a dialog pops up, telling that installation
  of all packages is impossible, only part of the packages could be
  installed (see attached screenshot). Most of the package entries from
  the ppa are disabled in the dialog.

  I did not install these packages because I fear my running LO 4.4.5
  installation will be destroyed by this attempt. Searching the internet
  for this issue the last days gave tons of sites about the general
  installation of LO by ppa but no hint for the problem described.

  The error is observed on two different systems, both Ubuntu 12.04 :
  1 : Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS precise Linux 3.5.0-54-generic (32 bit)
  2 : Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS precise Linux 3.13.0-61-generic (64 bit)
