Ubuntu's site states:

quote: "If you're using Ubuntu, don't install LibreOffice manually from the ".deb" files available at <>. Otherwise you will not get automatic updates & upgrades when new versions come out and you will be missing the integration to Ubuntu. Using official packages also ensures you get the best assistance from the community as this is the recommended method to install & use LibreOffice in Ubuntu"

They want you to use the PPA link or their repository for the latest updates.

Actually, I found that the OOo web site updated quicker and more often than Ubuntu's repository for their version of OOo. I do not think they will be any faster with LibreOffice updates.

Yes, it will be much easier to keep up-to-date when LibreOffice is in its repository and then find that there is an update shown in the daily, weekly, etc., update schedule that you set in your update manager. But there will be a time lag between LibreOffice's updates on their web site and Ubuntu's repository. So, the "no not install manually" statement may be taken the wrong way be some users as if there is something wrong with LibreOffice's own downloads.
