it does not open libreoffice.

If you upgraded LO recently, it may be pointing to the wrong target. Right-click the icon > Properties, click on the edit (pencil) icon and see where the command points.

I would myself try just deleting that icon and creating a new one.
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB
