I cannot install any new packages because of python3-uno dependency problems. Apt-get said that python3-uno depends on libreoffice-core (=1:3.5.7-0ubuntu4) but 1:3.5.7-0ubuntu5 is to be installed. I tried purging libreoffice * with no luck. Now I can open the Libre Office core but cannot make any files because they are all grayed out. How do I fix Libre Office and resolve the python3-uno dependency problems?

EDIT:I forgot to mention I'm running 12.04. Purging python3-uno and libreoffice* did not help. Installing updates on update manager and disabled all of my third party sources (except for the one called third party sources or something like that). Apt-get update did not help either. I'm afraid to upgrade the distribution because last time I tried to I got the black screen when starting up after install error. Libre Office core

  • Try downloading, and installing from Here. Make sure you choose your Ubuntu version. – Mitch Jan 29 '14 at 7:01
  • Note the red sign on your top right. There is something fishy with your repositories. You should try 'sudo apt-get update' and 'sudo apt-get -f dist-upgrade'. If it doesn't work you probably have some rogue PPA in your sources, try disabling it. – Javier Rivera Jan 30 '14 at 7:46

You can try this

sudo apt-get purge python3-uno libreoffice*

And then reinstall, but you'll have to reinstall any package that depends on python3-uno

When I ran the following command,

 sudo apt-get purge python3-uno

it told me something about /var/lib/dpkg/info/python3-uno.prerm and py3clean. I removed python3-uno.prerm and reinstalled libreoffoffice and it works fine!
