installing libreoffice via terminal

I want to install libreoffice via terminal, but I got the error message below
( libreoffice cannot be found )
With ubuntu there are no probs. Maybe I did something wrong. Anybody here to help me with that?


root@satellite2410:~# sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-l10n-de libreoffice-help-de

Usually you need to refresh the repository's listings.


sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libreoffice libreoffice-l10n-de libreoffice-help-de

If that is not working then look at what is or isn't in the repostiory and the repository itself:


apt-cache policy libreoffice
apt-cache policy

Also, if you are already logged in as root, it is not necessary to use sudo to become root again.

Edit: if the above does not work, then also try this before installing:


sudo apt update
It may ask a question or two about the repositories.

You should be able to install it using,


sudo apt-get install libreoffice*
(after running update).

I installed the office package with the package installer, that worked, and after that the German language package with the terminal.
