I use Open Office software, version 4.0.1 on a Xubuntu system.

Since I tried to install also the libreOffice-writer on the system:

  • The system package of Xubuntu is broken.
  • It is not possible any more to uninstall Open Office or uninstall libreoffice-writer, finally to reinstall Open Office and get rid of Libreoffice.
  • It is not possible any more to download any software at all on the PC.

Every time I try to repair the xubuntu package, Xubuntu asks me to reinstall libreoffice-common. But when I try to install it, it does not succeed. An error is displayed.

On the internet I have seen that OpenOffice and LibreOffice both use the same files. That is the reason both software packages conflict with each other.

Can anyone tell me what I should do to get out of this problem?
