The easiest way to get LibreOffice 6 in MX-17 is to use the MX Package Installer.
Start -> MX-Tools -> Package Installer -> Full App Catalog (tab) -> Debian Backports Repo
Select libreoffice and libroffice-base and click Install.
Yes, it will automatically remove the older version as it installs.
I just performed as proposed above and the installation is a success; I have LibreOffice 6 without traces of LibreOffice 5.4
No todos ignoramos las mismas cosas. :confused:

Do you plan to eventually move this to the main MX17 repo? Is there any reason that, if you plan to do that, I should wait for that rather than using the backports option?

I think the plan is to move it in over the next couple of weeks. Whether you wait or not is your call, end result will be the same.

Those weeks became one day. ;) I just saw it appear in my upgrade overview. Will this take care of the previous install, or is there something special I need to do?

It should remove the previous install.

Looks like it does, I don't see weird stuff in the menus or anything.

Works just fine, thanks!

I suspect this upgrade is why my LibreOffice applications stopped working this morning, reporting a missing dependency. This is the error I get trying to launch LibreOffice (loffice):

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libreoffice/program/libmergedlo.so: undefined symbol: _ZN11LanguageTagC1ERKS_

Update: I eventually managed to fix this by doing a full removal of the LibreOffice suite and then re-installing. This morning's "apt upgrade" borked the whole suite. I don't think it is a good idea to do a big version bump of a major application like LibreOffice in the main repo. One of the reasons I use MX is because it's based on Debian Stable and is less likely to change or introduce surprises like this.

Thanks for the feedback, and sorry you had that problem.

We tested it a good amount, but certainly not for all languages.

ok, this is interesting. the failure is likely due to

note that apt upgrade allows installation of packages when apt-get upgrade would hold them back. consulting the man pages indicates that apt-get upgrade is in fact not equivalent to apt upgrade. So I suspect some conflict set in.

investigating now. note that an apt-get dist-upgrade or a apt full-upgrade likely would have worked, but I haven't tested that as yet.
