We currently have Linux Mint installed on a number of devices and would like to upgrade the version of LibreOffice installed i.e. 3.4.4 to the latest version of 3.5.2 however upon running the command
apt-get update && apt-get -s install libreoffice it returns the version 3.4.4.
Now having read a number of posts e.g. http://askubuntu.com/questions/96161/how-to-update-libreoffice-to-the-latest-version, it is suggested that I wait until the next version of Ubuntu released which I don't.
I am also aware that I can run the command
apt-add-repository to add a Personal Package Archive (PPA) however when I run the command
apt-add-repository ppa:libreoffice/ppa I am returned the message
Most of the packages in this ppa have only experienced minor testing -- in fact it is the place to enable a wider audience to test packages before they are published into the distro proper......
I also downloaded a tar gzip package of LibreOffice from the official website however having gone through the readme, it is recommend that I use the package manager that comes with Debian or Ubuntu derivatives.
My question is that if I want to install the latest version of LibreOffice, what is the best way to do it. If the suggest is to go down the route of using Personal Package Archive (PPA), would it be recommended to delete the list of repositories after the latest version of LibreOffice has been installed and if so why aside from the fact that unstable versions of the package may be installed e.g. security issues, etc?
