LibreOffice binary package is corrupt

Postby GullibleJones » 10 Feb 2012, 16:34

I tried installing it twice; both times, one of the files (the same one) failed to decompress, resulting the the package not being installed (though its dependencies were).

Have you tried downloading it again?

I believe so. Though if it works for you then I probably messed up. :P

I'm using the 32-bit package for LibreOffice 3.4. Usually corrupt packages are due to download errors, though.

  • Which file exactly?
  • Where from exactly?
  • What md5 checksum do you have?

I've been having the same problems. Errors on a failure to decompress a bzip file.
Can post the exact file tonight when I get home.

Confirmed ... the file is absolutely corrupted on all mirrors. Tried all of them.

Please replace with an uncorrupted file.

Edit: specific file name: [FILE]libreoffice-3.4.4.tbz[/FILE]

Again we need more info.

When issuing [cmd=#]pkg_add -r libreoffice[/cmd] it will say what file it's downloading, from where and for which architecture.
Copy and paste that line here.

Abort the download and [man]fetch[/man] it manually. After that you can easily run [man=1]md5[/man] on it:
[cmd=#]md5 libreoffice-3.4.4.tbz[/cmd]

Apologies. I thought those answers would have been implied. For amd64, the package is [FILE]libreoffice-3.4.5.tbz[/FILE] and that one was fine. [FILE]libreoffice-3.4.4.tbz[/FILE] which is the one in question is for i386. Distro I grabbed for was [FILE]9.0-release[/FILE]. It is the 3.4.4 one for i386 which is corrupt on all mirrors tried.

I originally tried to add it using the normal [CMD="#"]pkg_add -r libreoffice[/CMD] and it spewed many errors from gtar claiming that files and directories didn't exist. There were many, many of them. Tried multiple mirrors, same result from all of them at a command line. I assumed that perhaps I was getting a truncated download, but the errors were exactly the same every time I tried. No other packages downloaded last night suffered any irregularities, just that one.

I then directly downloaded the file via ftp, again from six different mirrors (ftp., ftp4., etc) directly and saved to Desktop. I then opened the file using [FILE]file-roller[/FILE] in gnome and this screenshot shows the result:

And as requested, result of MD5 on the file (they all had the same result):

[CMD=#]MD5 (libreoffice-3.4.4.tbz) = d1f3e156e8b9930e71ee53d0a05821d4[/CMD]

Hope this helps.

OK, evidently the i386 package of LibreOffice 3.4.4 is broken. I don't think they'll create a new one, as they're busy preparing 3.5.

I've made one, maybe it can be of some use.
Code: Select all
SIZE (libreoffice-3.4.5.tbz) = 118853665
MD5 (libreoffice-3.4.5.tbz) = 8a5d64dd32ce83f672346a2135963008


It was built in a i386 VirtualBox without an X installation, so it's untested.

The download is no longer available as of August 9

Thanks for that ... we're probably going to revert to "legacy" but I'll give it a spin.
