"Check for updates" Crash

Post by Saneman1 »

When I go to the "Help" drop-down for OpenOffice and click "Check for Update" my OpenOffice crashes. I have put the crash report from my Mac on here. :knock:

Welcome to the Forums.
Your report shows that you are running 4.1.9, not 4.1.10
The "Check for Update" was reported broken back in (I believe) 4.1.7 and is reported to be repaired in 4.1.10
Please double check that you are running 4.1.10 and you should find that the "Check for Update" works, though it won't have anything (yet) as 4.1.10 is the latest release.
OpenOffice 4.1.7, LibreOffice 7.0.1.2 on Windows 7 Pro, Ultimate & Windows 10 Home (2004)

It is working.

I just checked. Opened preferences. Went to Online Updates. Clicked on "Check now".
Got result "OpenOffice 4.1.10 is up to date." which is the newest version.

I'm on the latest version, I already have done it manually. The point is, that the Check Update crashes this app. Libre Office had this exact issue and it was fixed. Guess I just have to wait for Apache.
