(Invalid) How to Change Libreoffice Fresh branch to Stable in DNF

Hi,
When Installing Libreofice in Fedora you get 2 options for install - Fresh & stable (or something like that I don’t rememmber)

First I installed LO with Fresh branch but now I want to switch to the other branch.
But even after doing dnf clean all, uninstalling LO.
I don’t get to chose that option while installing LO.

The Option which asks you which source you want to install package from - There are multiple sources. You have to choose option with Number.

How to do it?

EDIT: SORRY this option thing was in Arch Linux. I was using that before Fedora & got Confused. Sorry again.

Fresh branch? Stable branch? Never knew any of those existed in Fedora. Which version of Fedora is that? Please can you do the following and share your output?

sudo dnf repolist

I didn’t know that either.

@daveleedave you can also use a flatpak version of LibreOffice:

flatpak install flathub org.libreoffice.LibreOffice

You can find the version of libreoffice available in Fedora repos here: https://apps.fedoraproject.org/packages/libreoffice/

As of today, the flatpak from flathub as mentioned by @roypen is 6.4.2.2 (March 19th), so that is the most recent you can easily get.

The Option which asks you which source you want to install package from - There are multiple sources available. You have to choose option with Number.

I am using Fedora 32 - But it has nothing to do with this.
I Installed LO before & got 2 option from 2 different sources before on this same system.

You should tell us how you installed the package because if you install it in any recommended way (rpm from fedora repo using dnf or flatpak from flathub) you are not being asked about any options!

I installed from Fedora Repo using DNF
LO has two tpes of version 6.3.X & 6.4.X

6.4.X is a Fresh Branch.
6.3.X is another branch.

These options appear on lot of packages (I dont remember which exactly) but yes they do.
Something like - These package is available from two providers / source.

You get these options when you install LO for the first time on Fedora.
1st option (libreoffice-fresh) gives you 6.4.X
2nd gives you - 6.3.X

Sir … please open a terminal and issue the above command.
Post the output here.

Also share the output of the following:
sudo dnf list --installed | grep libreoffice

The latest stable version of LO is 6.4.2, which is available in Flathub repository. In Fedora repo the latest version is 6.4.1.
Most probably 6.3 version isn’t available for F32 in repositories.
But as @twohot said, share if you can the repositories list.

fedora                                         Fedora 32 - x86_64
fedora-cisco-openh264                          Fedora 32 openh264 (From Cisco) - x86_64

updates-testing                                Fedora 32 - x86_64 - Test Updates
updates-testing-modular                        Fedora Modular 32 - x86_64 - Test Updates

Other commands gives nothing becuase I have unistalled LO & want install from another option.

Okay … so LO is no longer on the system?
What do you want right now … to see different ways to install LO?

Your options:

  1. sudo dnf group install Libreoffice (i.e. on the terminal, which gives you the version of LO in Fedora official repository)
  2. Install the flatpak version (LO 6.4.2 as per @roypen)
  3. Install rpms from Document Foundation (that’s where you see lots of versions, Stable, Fresh, … you-name-it versions; but those packages are not maintained by the Fedora community … or I could be wrong?)
  4. Install from a verified Copr Repository (if anyone is maintaining LO there)

The only option for Fresh branch and Stable branch is Fedora Modularity Repo and LO is not there
