  .deb installation fails silently

Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  1. Download the LibreOffice 5.2.0 x64 .deb package - 
  2. Unpack
  3. Open the DEBS directory in Files
  4. Right click on libreofficedev5.2-calc_5.2.0.0.beta1-1_amd64.deb and choose 
"Open With Software Install"

  The progress bar starts and after a few seconds, resets, as if the
  install was never attempted. No errors are presented to the user.

  This installation method is recommended by LibreOffice at
  but I've found other .debs that fail as well.

  Is it a dependencies problem, as explained at
  on-linux-x64/? In that case, the should be SOME indication to as user
  as to what's going on, and ideally the dependencies should be
  installed automatically or after prompting the user.
