Comment 4 jdt37b 2017-11-06 09:47:01 UTC
2 attachements.
No results with Trusty 14.04 and LO 5.4.2 because i am returned in 4.4.7 !
But the résult KO with Xenial 16.04.

nb : other problem, base file created in LO 4.4.7 is KO with LO Base 5.3.7 and 5.4.2. (bug 113655)
Comment 5 Buovjaga 2017-11-13 18:04:38 UTC
So do you mean that if B6 gets the content "The link could not be updated." after updating links, the problem is present?
Comment 6 jdt37b 2017-11-13 18:38:38 UTC
Yes, that's the problem, look at the 2 attachments.
In the attached piece LO 4.4.7, we can clearly see an Ok result that goes from B6 to D13, the link having been created in B6.
In the attached piece LO 5.4.2, only B6 is filled with "Impossible d'actualiser le lien", the link having been created also in B6.

This problem exists in Ubuntu Trusty 14.04 LTS and Xenial 16.04 LTS, external data is not recovered with Calc 5.4.2.

To see the link and testing : Menu "Edition" -> "Liens" -> "Actualiser" (in the French version)

Bisected with Win 5.3 repo to https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=59d6d5579528a66e55b75987d2d959968db485a8 which does look relevant. I checked that the previous commit does not show the problem.

The example document in 7.3 bibisect and 7.3 with webdav-curl side by side

This seems to be fixed with the new webdav-curl backend in 7.3 master, while the error is still present in the fresh bibisect-7.3 version.
Comment 12 Buovjaga 2021-11-24 06:55:15 UTC
Let's close as fixed as we know the work that fixed it.
