@simosx: I gave this another test on a clean xenial VM with the same
gnome-software version as you.  Each time it launched the main
"libreoffice" command (showing a window asking to open recent files or
create a new document in one of the libreoffice applications).

gnome-software continues running when you close the window, so is it
possible you were still running the old version when you saw the
failure?

Bug description:
  HOW TO REPRODUCE:

  1. Install LibreOffice snap ('nonfree' tag) from Ubuntu Software.
  2. Click on the 'Launch' button once you have it installed.

  WHAT IS EXPECTED: 
  It should launch the LibreOffice wizard instead of any of Writer, Calc, etc.

  WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS: 
  It launches LibreOffice Database.

  
  WHY THIS HAPPENS?

  Ubuntu Software probably picks the first listed command
  (libreoffice.base), as shown in

  $ snap info libreoffice
  name:      libreoffice

  The order in snapcraft.yaml is different, so probably Snapcraft is changing 
the order (it might assume that 'libreoffice' is 'libreoffice.libreoffice', so 
it puts it further down.
