As I posted once before, I saw a post that said the “update” action on OpenOffice is broken. I have resorted to just navigating to the download page periodically and checking to see if a new version exists on the download page , downloading and installing if their is a new version. The new version installs seamlessly if you install it to the same or the default location on your computer. Settings are kept.
