Hi--welcome to the forum!

Can you give us a little more information? What did you try? What exactly didn't work?

I am having the same problem. I go to the home page of OOo, click on download Open Office, click again to download it, and it starts to download, but then after a few seconds I am directed to a page that says:

Oops! Internet Explorer could not connect to
•Go to openoffice.­org
•Try reloading: download.­services.­openoffice.­org/­files/­stable/­3.­3.­0/­OOo_3.­3.­0_Win_x86_instal­l-­wJRE_en-­US.­exe
•Search on Google:

and all of these options just take me back to the same page, as above.

I understand OOo is under some sort of reorganization now. Could this be causing the problem, and will things eventually get fixed? If so, when?
OOo 2.3.X on Linux-Other

Try hand picking a mirror site near to you from the mirror list
double click on the ftp or http link on the site line.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.4 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
