I had that same problem when I tried to install LO on both my new computer and on a new laptop. I had also been having problems with my internet connection while trying to set up the new computer.

So, when the install did not work on either computer, I tried downloading the program with a different WiFi network, and this time I got different errors, but it would still not install on either computer.

I've tried to install LibreOffice and the Help on two computers where I work.

the IT department here ... I'm suspicious that it's getting hosed on this
end, somehow ...
