Well, things are rather distro-specific.
I would suggest not to update, but to remove first OOo and then install
AOO. On the other hand, it is rather likely that some package conflicts
with libreoffice, so installing AOO will need some manual tweaking.

On Fedora, for example, there was the issue with the URE package

Now AOO URE package is obsoleted by libreoffice's package:

Cannot install package It is
obsoleted by installed package 1:libreoffice-ure-

So you have to edit yum.conf

su -c 'vim /etc/yum.conf'

and exclude libreoffice:


Some kind of conflict also exists in Ubuntu, and I guess many other

Back to the update shell script, I downloaded
OOo_3.2.1_Linux_x86-64_install-rpm-wJRE_en-US.tar.gz and tried that
script. At least on Fedora is completely broken, it does nothing. And as
installing in Linux will for sure need some manual tweaking, it is not
worth wasting the time trying to bring that script back in AOO.
