How to check latest updated version of LibreOffice fresh from repository?

I ever used Cinnamon Desktop Spins, dnfdragora displayed the details and version of LibreOfffice.
I am now using Fedora 33 Workstation and Software shows:

Is this also the current version in my computer ?
Or how can I check it from the Terminal ?

Write in terminal:
libreoffice --version

[fedora002@localhost ~]$ libreoffice --version
LibreOffice 7.0.3.1 00(Build:1)

[fedora002@localhost ~]$ 

Is it older than in Software ?

P.S. I have 2 LibreOffice’s installed; from fresh repository and from RPM with the same version 7.0.3.1.

7.0.3.1 = 7.0.3.1

Are you wondering about the 1:? That’s the “Epoch:” tag…versioning can be confusing sometimes. https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/packaging-guidelines/Versioning/#_epoch_tag

If you run dnf info libreoffice, this is what you get:

Available Packages

Name         : libreoffice
Epoch        : 1
Version      : 7.0.3.1
Release      : 1.fc33
Architecture : x86_64
Size         : 16 k
Source       : libreoffice-7.0.3.1-1.fc33.src.rpm
Repository   : updates

What is the fresh repository? And what does “from RPM” mean? Just remove everything that is not from official Fedora repo.

How should I check more ?

Got it. But how did you install the two libreoffices? And what is Fresh repository, what is rpm?

Can you show us the output of:

dnf repolist
dnf repoquery -ai --installed libreoffice
rpm -qi libreoffice
flatpak list

  1. By default from clean installation of Fedora 33 Workstation + LibreOffice Base from Software. My LibreOffice calc macro crashed.
  2. From LibreOffice RPM package. The same LibreOffice calc macro did not crash.

I have to move my work on, so I have to get both libreoffices installed.

This is my question to Ask LibreOffice and my report to Red Hat Bugzilla.

I am so exited and expect to hearing the update for 7.0.3.1-3.fc33 soon.
And after that I also don’t know how I can uninstall LibreOffice installed with RPM package.
