If you are using the LibreOffice version from the Ubuntu repository,
please remember that it is not the official vanilla version from TDF but
is repackaged by Canonical (and as such may include bugs not present in
the official version from The Document Foundation).

LibreOffice included with Ubuntu 16.04 is very old (four years, for a
product updated every six months, are a geological era), and features of
Calc have been improved on a regular basis. We are now at 6.4.5, and in
a week we will announce 7.0.

Absolutely, but 20.04.1 LTS is a minor upgrade which has some of the
bugs of 20.04 that have been fixed prior to the cut off date set for
20.04.1. I have checked the box which will produceĀ  the notice that a
new version is available. I do not get this notice until the *.04.1
minor upgrade is available.

An example of this occurred several years ago. The *.04 version (I do
not remember the year) failed to contain the proper driver for a
specific monitor. This was added beforeĀ  the *.04.1 minor upgrade came out.

On my linux 16.04 box .. each time i perform any function that

tab my computer goes into Oh shit mode.. it disables my keyboard
activity, and the disk goes to spinning,, the background of the
spreadsheet goes into grey mode, and it sometimes takes two or
three minutes before the full control reappears and the background
returns back from greyed out to white again.

is this this has been going on since last November.. but it has
reached epidemic proportions .. and has rendered Libre office
useless on my machine

hard to tell without knowing some things like:

1) what is the size of this worksheet?

2) how much internal memory do you have on your machine?

3) what version of LibreOffice?

With 'linux 16.04' you probably mean Ubuntu 16.04 ? This means you
should upgrade before April 2021 (see:

Ubuntu 20.04.1 is due out in the next couple of weeks unless the
covid 19 virus is slowing things down...
