What operating system?
What method did you use to update?
What exact path did you use to the 7.6 install?
Is 7.5 still installed on your system?

I run Xubuntu 22.04.3 LTS.

I updated from the link sent out from LO announcing V 7.6.2.

The 7.6 install went to /opt/libreoffice7.6, with the soffice binary
links in /usr/local/bin:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 29 Sep 29 19:38 /usr/local/bin/libreoffice ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 Sep 29 19:39 /usr/local/bin/libreoffice7.6
-> /opt/libreoffice7.6/program/soffice

I did leave 7.5 installed at the time I ran into this issue.

I never use the main menu links to Office -> LibreOffice... - I mostly
use a keyboard shortcut which maps to /usr/local/bin/libreoffice,
which I keep up to date on the link destination.

I use Thunar's Properties links in the file details to adjust between
minor revision levels of LO files (and Word/Excel/PowerPoint files) as
needed - every minor or major revision change.

I did solve the issue by re-verifying the links to make sure they were
correct (one was not), uninstalling 7.4 and 7.5 with Synaptic, and

All is well.  I must have slipped up somewhere along the way.

Thanks to all who responded - much help.

Best wishes,
