Hi Anthony,

This is how I update to each new version of the Document Foundation
version of Libre Office. This is for the 64 bit version, but simply
substitute the 32 bit version for the 64 bit. This is for the latest release:

Download LibO_3.6.4.3_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US.tar.gz to the
desktop. Right click on it and extract it to the desktop. This will
give you the folder LibO_3.6.4.3_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_3.6.4.3_Linux_x86-64_install-deb_en-US/DEBS/*.deb 3.
sudo dpkg -i

A shorter option is as follows:
1       Download the appropriate file(s)
2       tar zxvf ./<wherever you downloaded to>/<downloaded '.tar./gz' file>
3       sudo dpkg -iR ./<as above>/<extracted installation directory>/DEBS

The 'R' option, as suggested by it's character, invokes a recursive operation on all .deb files in all sub-directories, thus avoiding the redundant operation on the desktop integration stuff.
