I am having trouble with this suite.   Normally I have been able to open, amend, and save a

different name, delete the original, and then rename the new document to fit in with my filing 
system.     This is time consuming, and very inconvenient.
The only event that I can identify as a possible cause is that about the same time there was an 
automatic update to Windows 10, and there might be some incompatablity between the updated 
Windows and LibreOffice.    (I have since installed the latest update to LibreOffice5, but to no 
avail;  the problem is still there).    However that is only a wild guess!     I would be 
grateful for your advice and a remedy

I have two basic questions:

 1. Have you confirmed the original file wasn't already "read-only"
    before attempting to open it?
 2. Are you opening files from the file system or directly from an email

These are things you have probably already thought of but I want to ask
anyway.  :)   I've run LibreOffice 5 on a couple of Windows 10 systems
and have been able to open, edit, and save documents without issue.
