Hi Sharon,

This is how I always upgrade LibreOffice in Ubuntu:

For the 64 Bit Version:
Download LibO_3.5.3_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz from The Document Foundation to the desktop. Right click on it and extract it to the desktop. This will give you the folder LibO_3.5.3rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US
Run the following terminal commands to install it:
1. sudo apt-get remove libreoffice*.*
2. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibO_3.5.3rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/*.deb 3. sudo dpkg -i ~/Desktop/LibO_3.5.3rc2_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/desktop-integration/libreoffice3.5-debian-menus_3.5.3-2_all.deb 4. In Ubuntu with Unity, I then put new icons in the Launcher Bar for the portions I want there.

I've upgraded 4 computers from 3.5.2 to 3.5.3 so far, without any issues at all. I've used this method for years with both OpenOffice, and now LibreOffice.
