.deb installation fails silently
Status in gnome-software package in Ubuntu:
1. Download the LibreOffice 5.2.0 x64 .deb package -
3. Open the DEBS directory in Files
4. Right click on libreofficedev5.2-calc_22.214.171.124.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.
