    If you need a proxy server, enter the proxy settings in Tools - Options - Internet - Proxy.
  2. Choose Check for Updates to check for the availability of a newer version of your office suite.

If a newer version is available and LibreOffice is not set up for automatic downloading, then you can select any of the following actions:

  • Download the new version.
  • Install the downloaded files.
  • Abort this check for updates for now.

If LibreOffice is configured to download the files automatically, the download starts immediately. A download continues even when you minimize the dialog.

If automatic downloads are disabled, start the download manually.

If no update was found, you can close the dialog.
