Libre Office Help Error with F1 or Click

Hello All,
I have just updated from the Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS to the Ubuntu MATE 20.04 LTS. I noticed that I started getting the error when I tap F1 button or click the Help>LibreOffice Help button as shown below:
I am using Libre Office version I tried the reinstall buttons in the software boutique that did not correct this issue. I tried to download and install the help file manually from Libre Office website and I received the following error from package installer: "Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: libobasis6.4-en-us(>="
I have not had much success on Internet searchs either with "Object not accessible. The object cannot be accessed due to insufficient user rights." Closest thing I found was path settings Temp = TMP, so I added that in the Tools>Options>Paths as /tmp, and that did not work either. So, I am out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have run an INXI on my system. See below for further system information.

Thanks In Advance,
Mike W.

This looks like


You can also try running the following command which will bring all related packages with it:

sudo apt install libreoffice

The above is a meta command and installs all components of the office package. :grinning:

Thanks Wolfman, but I am still getting the same error when I launch the help in any of the LibreOffice programs.

Hello Maximuscore, I visited this link that you suggested, and it did have a work around. I am able to open a webbrowser to the LibreOffice website's software help.

Thanks Sir,
Mike W.
