Unable to do a routine update in Manjaro 0.8.7


I would be grateful if anyone could help with this problem:

I recently installed Manjaro 0.8.7 on my computer and it seems to run very well and I have been doing routine updates when I receive a notification that there are some.

However, I am unable to install the latest batch of updates because of the following error message relating to file conflicts:

/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/wordbook/en-GB.dic exists in both 'libreoffice-en-GB' and 'libreoffice-en-US'
/usr/lib/libreoffice/share/wordbook/en-US.dic exists in both 'libreoffice-en-GB' and 'libreoffice-en-US
The directory /usr has /lib, /lib32 and /lib64 and each one has /libreoffice/share/wordbook, but none of them contains a file called en-US.dic

I read somewhere that when there are file conflicts preventing updates from being installed one should edit pacman.conf and remove the hash sign from the lines beginning HoldPkg and SyncFirst. When I looked at pacman.conf those lines already had the hash sign removed.

Could anyone help by telling me how to remove these file conflicts, please
