Libreoffice 4.4 was just released - the corresponding repository was created just some hours ago, it seems. As a result, the mentioned commands work now:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-4
sudo apt-get update                                    
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
The following packages will be upgraded:
  fonts-opensymbol libreoffice libreoffice-avmedia-backend-gstreamer libreoffice-base libreoffice-base-core libreoffice-base-drivers libreoffice-calc libreoffice-common libreoffice-core libreoffice-draw
  libreoffice-help-de libreoffice-impress libreoffice-java-common libreoffice-kde libreoffice-l10n-de libreoffice-math libreoffice-pdfimport libreoffice-report-builder-bin libreoffice-sdbc-firebird
  libreoffice-sdbc-hsqldb libreoffice-style-human libreoffice-style-oxygen libreoffice-writer python3-uno uno-libs3 ure

Please note, thought that right now the packages in the repo still carry the version tag rc3. It might take some more time until they are updated to the final version.


The "official" PPA for Libre-Office 4.4:


To add it:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-4-4
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

"et voilà"

    The other advantage with this one, is that it is the STABLE release. Those going for the generic libreoffice/ppa need to realise it is the betas and alphas ppa, and thus often has unstable updates. Mar 10, 2015 at 2:11

LibreOffice 4.4 has been added to the official libreoffice ppa some hours ago. You can update it right now:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

in case you don't have the ppa already, put this line into the terminal before.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa

There is no PPA named libreoffice-4-4 on LibreOffice's Launchpad page.

Try to install using the following PPA -

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:libreoffice/libreoffice-prereleases
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice

The libreoffice-prereleases PPA currently contains LibreOffice 4.4 packages.

Alternately, download the LibreOffice_4.4.0.1_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz from the prereleases server. Extract it into a folder, cd into it and install using sudo dpkg -i '*.deb'.
