It's 404 because there is no karmic version in the PPA: https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa I doubt there will be either as karmic reaches EOL in April: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
Try downloading and installing from the documentfoundation.org - that works nicely.
That would be my recommendation as well. @plino: installation instructions are here: http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/installation/ http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/installation/linux/ [Installation of LibreOffice on Debian/Ubuntu-based Linux systems] -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org List archive: http://listarchives.libreoffice.org/www/users/ *** All posts to this list are publicly archived for eternity ***
